With 9:38 left in the first quarter Kobe Bryant had the ball at the top of the key, drove, pumped fake at the free-throw line, and then assisted himself off the backboard:

Kobe finished the game with 37 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists on 14-29 shooting.

The Big 3 (Bryant, Bynum, and Gasol) for the Lakers combined for some great numbers. They combined for 72 Points (29-55 FG/53%) , and 38 Rebounds.
