Kobe's 61 Sets MSG Record

By  | 

Kobe Bryant has scored 61 points against the New York Knicks, breaking the record for a game at the current Madison Square Garden.

Bernard King had 60 points for the Knicks on Dec. 25, 1984. Bryant surpassed that mark by hitting two free throws with 2:33 left in the Los Angeles Lakers' 126-117 win Monday night.

Bryant shot 19-of-31 from the floor and made all 20 foul shots. He left to a standing ovation with 1:48 to go.

The Knicks played their first game at the current Madison Square Garden, known as ''Garden IV,'' in February 1968.
