Kobe Bryant is the 1st visiting player to score at least 47 points AT Portland since Larry Bird in 1986.
Kobe Bryant, 34 years of age, has played 2,968 minutes this season. The last players to eclipse 3,000 minutes in a single season at 34+ years of age were Michael Jordan (2002-03) and Gary Payton (2002-03).
Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Dwight Howard combined for 90 points, their highest combined scoring output of the season. This mark surpassed 79 points the trio scored on October 31, 2012 against...the Portland Trail Blazers.
Kobe Bryant scored 47 points on Wednesday night, eclipsing Kevin Durant for the highest average points per game in the second game playing on consecutive nights. He is now averaging 29.7 points in 15 games in the second game of a back-to-back. This was the first time in 16 tries the Lakers swept both teams in consecutive days.
NEXT LEVEL: Kobe Bryant scored season-high 47 points Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, scoring in a variety of ways. He primarily used post-ups against Damian Lillard, Will Barton, and Sasha Pavlovic, who defended Bryant on 24 of his 27 field goal attempts. But he was effective in other play types.
Entering tonight, Kobe Bryant had never played all 48 minutes in a non-OT game on the road in his career.
