    MORE NOTES ON ARENAS' RECORD-SETTING NIGHT
    0 to 60: In a 60-point explosion in his hometown of Los Angeles on December 17th, Gilbert Arenas signed his name all over the record books.
  • Arenas established a new career-high, all-time franchise record, and NBA season-high points scored by an individual player in a game.
  • Arenas became the first player to score 60 points against the Lakers since Wilt Chamberlain did so in 1966, and the only player other than Chamberlain to ever score 60+ against the Lakers
  • Arenas’ 16 points in overtime against L.A. set an all-time NBA record for points scored in an overtime session
  • Arenas’ 60 points marked the second-most points scored in a game in STAPLES Center history, behind only Kobe Bryant's 81 points vs. Toronto last season
  • Arenas and Kobe Bryant did something only six other pairs of opponents had ever done when they scored 60+ and 45+ respectively in the same game
  • Arenas’ and Bryant’s feat marked the first time that happened in an NBA game in 44 years, and the first time ever without Wilt Chamberlain.
