Official Lakers Release

31 years, 93 days

The last time the Lakers and Knicks had clashed, Kobe Bryant left quite the imprint with a 61-point performance at Madison Square Garden.

Bryant didn’t challenge that total this time around, but he nonetheless caught fire and led his team to a 100-90 win over New York.

L.A. maintained control for the entire contest, as the Knicks shot just 38.9 percent, while each starting Laker scored double figures.

Needless to say, this included Bryant, who dropped 34 points (14-of-20) — 13 of which came in a third quarter when he didn’t miss on any of his six shots.

While Bryant poured in buckets and collected four assists and three steals, Pau Gasol (11 points, 16 rebounds) led the way on the glass, as L.A. outrebounded its visitors 60-36 for its fourth consecutive win.
