MANILA, Philippines – Every basketball fan had the date of Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game circled on their calendar. What few of those fans could have imagined is that Kobe Bryant would have one of the best scoring outputs of his career to walk off on the highest note imaginable.
That’s exactly what Bryant did, turning in 60 points as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Utah Jazz, 101-96, at Staples Center. Bryant started slow, the wear and tear of a 20-year career weighing on his once explosive legs, but he caught fire late, scoring jumper after jumper, including the go-ahead jumper inside the final minute.
Bryant tallied his sixth career 60-point game in the process. Watch the magic that was the Black Mamba’s final NBA game above. – Rappler.com
