Lakers 92, Mavericks 61 (end of the 3rd quarter)
With 12 minutes of basketball to play, Kobe Bryant has outscored Dallas, 62-61. Even more remarkably, he’s done so without taking 50 shots.
Though Elgin Baylor’s Lakers record of 71 points is well within reach, Bryant appears to be getting the rest of the night off. He’ll need his rest in order to take 50 shots against Miami on Christmas Day.
