Kobe Bryant’s final season has been a whole lot of ugly, and it hit a new low when his Los Angeles Lakers lost to the previously winless Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. But then, amazingly, Kobe turned back the clock against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.
In a vintage closing performance, Bryant scored 12 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, and he hit several clutch buckets to help close out a 108-104 victory:
These are basically the same kind of questionable shots he’s been taking all year, but this time, he made them! And he got serenaded with “KO-BE” chants from the visiting crowd:
Kobe shot a respectable 10-of-24 from the field for his 31 points:
Last time Kobe Bryant scored 30 or more: Dec. 9, 2014. Lakers beat Kings at Staples. 32 points (11-for-27).
