Bryant spent 20 seasons between 1996-2016 at his beloved Los Angeles Lakers, during which time he scored a staggering 81 points in a single game on January 22, 2006.

Fourteen years later that figure still remains the second-most points ever scored by an individual player in a NBA game.

Bryant's points per quarter in the Lakers' 122-104 victory over the Toronto Raptors that memorable day were: 14-12-27-28

Fellow NBA great Wilt Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 100 individual points for the Philadelphia Warriors in March 1962.
