Who will have the highest point total?

The Raptors are obviously better than the Knicks but will LeBron be thinking about trying to beat that record? Will Kobe continue this outburst?

my money would be on Kobe.
Bynum is gone, so he will again have a bigger role.
he was also obviously red hot in his last game.

he beat on the Knicks with speed and jumpshooting ability.
Lebron's jumpshooting does not compare, so i doubt he will have THAT great of a game against them.

and we all know what Kobe can do against a bad raps team when he is on fire...:speechless:

ya we (raptors) suck *** right now..

kobe does have to carry the load right now and no one on the raps can really guard him for extended minutes so i bet kobe puts up atleast 40 tonight and anything beyond that is because its a close high scoring affair..

we'll see..

No, LeBron doesn't care about breaking that stupid record, because he's a real team player.

Kobe- 61 points, 3 assists, 0 rebounds
If LeBron wanted to, he could shatter it while not being selfish.

You may have had a point if Kobe shot poorly to get those points. Any player shooting 61% deserves to have the ball in his hands. Not to mention he got to shoot free throws TWENTY TIMES. With Bynum going down, the balance of scoring shifts and he realized someone needed to pick up the slack. It's not like another player scored 31, oh wait, Pau Gasol did.

Stop hating, please. Lebron won't score 61 because he can't. He can hit 50 but 60 and beyond requires a shooting stroke he just doesn't have, not to mention that he'll never go 20/20 from the FT Line.

Kobe should get his average, while Lebron will play a great all around game. Plus he already went on record saying he wasn't gonna try to beat Kobe's record.

That sam night he shot 58% and went 13-13 at the FT line.

Your whole long whatever you want to call it is full of fail.
Nobody in the league can get to the basket like LeBron can, and draw those fouls. Yes Kobe is a better shooter easily, but LeBron gets to the basket with ease. If you don't think LeBron can score 60 points, your are greatly mistaken.

He passes the ball.

Actually lebron was 45% not 58%. and lebron had 33 points and 4 ast that game.

But i do agree that lebron is certainly cabaible of scoring 60.

I respect both players but your a moron to say Lebron could put up 60 points on the knicks without being selfish because Lebron cant shoot. Also he isnt a good FT shooter either. So Kobe scoring 60 on 31 shots is AMAZING Lebron would have to shoot atleast 45 times to hit that mark.

Kobe does what his team needs, he just finished a run of 4 straight triple double games didnt he? Then when he needs to score he will put up 45-60 on you.

Now Kobe is hard to read because we dont know what he plans on doing because he reads the defense.......if they double him right away he becomes Kobe-Nash, if they play him staright up he will burn you, and if they try and send a double late he will eith beat you or find that open guy, so unless you told me how the Raptors are gonna play him tonight its hard to tell.

Lebron will get 38 tonight and Kobe well if he is Kobe-Nash tonight he will get 22 but if the team needs points he will go for 48

Your math is off buddy, lol 9-20 is not 58% and he passes the ball huh? he had 4 assists that game lol so lets see here

Kobe 19 - 31 FG 3-6 3pt 20 - 20 FT 3 assists 2 TO Shot 61% for the game

Lebron 9 - 20 FG 2-5 3pt 13-13 FT 4 assists 3 TO shot 45% for the game

and Yes Lebron can score 60 but not on 31 shots! he would have to have atleast 45 attempts

Jackson Doesn't Want Kobe Taking Over

Feb 04, 2009 9:40 AM EST


Kobe Bryant helped lead the Lakers past the Knicks on Monday night with 61 points, but coach Phil Jackson doesn't want his star taking over every game.

Even with Andrew Bynum out, Jackson doesn't want Kobe shutting out his teammates for the remainder of the season.

"We don't want him to because we have so many other players that can contribute," Jackson said. "Obviously with Andrew [Bynum] out, we're missing a piece of scoring there that's been effective for us. At the end of the game [against New York], Pau [Gasol] was feeding Kobe and finding him in certain situations where he probably could have persisted in the post himself.

"I talked to [Bryant] after the game and said, 'Why don't you let me know when you're going to go off like that before a ballgame so we can measure it out accordingly?' But when he started out that hot, everybody fed into it and it just kept accumulating."

Doesn't look like Kobe will be scoring 40+ today.

The Raptors aren't good this year, but the Knicks are still the Knicks just a slightly different version. This time around, they play no defense. I could see both Kobe and LeBron going for 50+ tonight. But hey if not this year, LeBron will have plenty of chances to put up more than 61 as a visitor at the Garden over the next 10-15 years. :D

The whole "they play no defense thing"
where are you getting this again?
espn? what you remember about the past 1-2 years?
They play defense. They have coach Mike Dantoni, but they aren't running seven seconds or less. We just didn't have anyone capable of shutting down Kobe that night, nor do I think any other team did either.

yea his numbers are gonna look great because people dont understand that he has the ball 90% of the time...so if you always have the ball, you will be able to shoot 30+ shots while dishing out 10+ assists...no doubt that hes great, but everything in the offense runs thru him...the triangle does not go thru Kobe

It kinda was his normal game bud, points, rebounds, and assists, 1 board away from a triple double.

That happens often.

I don't think people understand, I'm not a Cavs fan, or a Lakers hater, I just don't think Kobe is better than LeBron.

And Kobe played his regular game against the Knicks, right?

He averages 61 points and 0 rebounds?

I was just going to post something along the lines of this. People seem not to realize that LeBron is basically a point forward, and the offense of the Cleveland Cavaliers runs through him 90 percent of the time. With the triangle, Kobe does not have the ball in his hands at all times, thus does not put up the stat stuffing numbers some players do. He just does what he can do with position he is placed in by the coach, which is what all NBA players do.

He scored 52 points(8 away from 60 what you said he couldnt do) with 11 assists, without those assists you dont think he can score 60? And you said regardless.

I think Kobes was better because I watched both of those games Lebron had 5 or six shots were he didn't even set up any offense he just pulled up for a low percentage two point shot which isn't his shot I guess he felt obligated to break Kobes record in a pretty way or something. Kobes was more impressive becuase he was perfect at the line plus his field goal percentage was rediculous and he had less shot attempts with more points

LOL this talk is so funny....EVEYONE is on Lebron's nuts and you either HATE kobe or Love the guy.

1. Lebron played the WHOLE game 44:03 Minutes - Kobe played 36:48 you give Kobe 8 more minutes shooting 61% he would have had 70

2. Lebron knew what he was chasing and wanted to out dew Kobe, Kobe did it because the team needed him to score

3. Lebron got only 52 with 33 shots and 19 FT and shot 51% - Kobe got 61 on 31 shots shooting 61%

4. Lebron is a SF but plays point gaurd on Offense and the ball is in his hands everytime down

5. Ofcourse he's gonna get more rebounds on Defense the 2 guard is on the Perimeter and the SF has a lot better positioning then a SG. Also Lebron is stronger and bigger

6. This 1 is important that has to with with point #4. Lebron scores 52 points but who else on that team had more then 15? Kobe had 61 and Gasol had 31 points. The ball is in Gasol's hands just as much as Kobe or more.

Lebron knew about the game Kobe had there the day before and wanted to put up a better performance, he had a GREAT stat line 52-11-10 in 44 min shooting 51 % and almost lost

Kobe running a offense where he shares the touches with Gasol on the block gets you 61 on 61% shooting 20-20 FT in ONLY 36 min and with ONLY 31 shots.

Take 8 minutes away from Lebron what would be his stat line be then???

38- 8- 8 ????? he got his tripple double on the last play of the game

Give Kobe 8 more minutes what does he finish with

70 - 2 - 5?????

I think Kobes was better because I watched both of those games Lebron had 5 or six shots were he didn't even set up any offense he just pulled up for a low percentage two point shot which isn't his shot I guess he felt obligated to break Kobes record in a pretty way or something. Kobes was more impressive becuase he was perfect at the line plus his field goal percentage was rediculous and he had less shot attempts with more pointsYeah, kobe was way more efficient but Lebron's assists and rebounds was still pretty good.

do you realize who the lakers have on their team?

It's not just kobe, there are other very good players.

Pau gasol tonight-31 points/15 boards/4 assists
lebron plays with garbage around him, lebron is pretty much the cavs team, and they have the same record as the lakers.

That should tell you something.


no freakin way mo williams is better then d-fish!

Varejao is probably the best offensive rebounder in the game!

Iljauskas is good as far as cavs fans are conCerned!

And u have one of the best defenders in the league(BEN WALLACE) so stop kidding urselfs!


One more thing u have 2 great three point shooters in booby gibson and wally z!

Didn't think LeBron would be able to top Kobe's electrifying scoring night. But he did. Just filthy.

I do like Kobe's 'just business' approach alot better than LeBrons showboating however.

Kobe's performance at MSG was more impressive. He shot a slightly higher percentage, created most of his shots, his shots were VARIED, he used unexpected moves (just when the D though they knew what was coming, he'd break out something else), LeBron spent EIGHT more minutes on the floor, Kobe would have played more minutes if his game was as close as LeBron's, it goes to show that even that from LeBron got them a very narrow victory (they get better wins when they play team ball), watching the game you could see that Kobe was IN THE ZONE and LeBron was just going to get numbers... finally, LeBron was arrogant and Kobe wasn't. Kobe didn't have to say anything, he left that to everyone else and LeBron had to try and hype his performance up afterwards.
