3. Eighty-one point game- 2006
Call him a chuck if you wish, but the bottom line is this: Kobe Bryant scored 81 points in one game -- only to be outdone by the great Wilt Chamberlain. In what some hail as a leader simply taking the reigns, the Black Mamba caught fire against the Toronto Raptors back in 2006, after scoring only 26 points in the first half. Practically stealing the entire fourth quarter show, Bryant scored 28 of the team’s 31, leading the Lakers to 122-104 victory.
