Kobe looks for another vintage MSG performance
In the history of the modern Madison Square Garden, also known as MSG IV, 13 players have scored 50 points. Leading the way? Kobe Bryant.
On Feb. 2, 2009, Bryant dropped 61 points in a 126-117 win over the Knicks. Bryant shot 19-for-31 from the floor, 3-for-6 from three, and 20-for-20 from the line. He added three assists.
