36 years, 129 days

A grizzled Black Mamba proved that he still had a bit of everything left in the tank, as 36-year-old Kobe Bryant dropped a triple-double on Denver in the Lakers’ 111-103 victory.

Bryant finished with 23 points by shooting 6-of-11 from the field and 8-of-11 at the line. Though he also had nine turnovers, Bryant stamped the 21st triple-double of his career by tallying 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

The Lakers appeared to be cruising after taking a 16-point halftime lead, but Denver brought the game within four points with four minutes left.

From there, Bryant scored Los Angeles’ next six points — all on free throws — to ice it.

The Lakers shot 52.6 percent as a team, while Carlos Boozer provided 19 points and nine rebounds off the bench.
