FINAL : The Kings won in a crazy night in Sacramento. After a recent event in which police shot and killed Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man, protestors formed a human chain that didn’t allow people to enter the arena. The Kings closed the doors for the whole game due to safety concerns for people trying to enter. Through this madness, Sacramento got the win over the 21-51 Hawks. -KH-

March 22 2007: 11 years ago today, after scoring 65pts and 50pts in his previous 2 games, Kobe went for 60pts at Memphis. (Mamba see, Mamba do; now, see the game in the moment through his eyes)
Fan A: "Look, spotting up from 40ft! It's Steph Curry!
Fan B: "No! Look now in the post, fading away - it's Michael Jordan!!"
Stiltsky: I would say the full repertoire was on display here, but that wouldn't quite cover it for this one. He didn't look this good even in the 65pt double OT clutchfest vs the Blazers he put on two games before this. Physically, his movement was never smoother. Mentally, he was never more confident in his calculations. This is what the best player possible probably looks like. There's a "it doesn't matter who's defending him" factor that I'll go into in the comments. Only one player in the game's history has ever mastered the full spectrum of scoring skills. Disagree? Well, this is a 60 second, single-game edit. I couldn't put together a career mix of any other player in the history of the game showcasing such mastery and variety even if i wanted to. And neither could you. Because the footage doesn't exist, unless the player is named Kobe, in which case career mixes aren't needed. Dahntay Jones at one point tried to jaw with him. Dumb dumb dumb. Watch Kobe immediately demand the ball in the post and take him to school.
3rd game of #Kobe50ptStreak
This was the third game in a row where Kobe scored at least 50pts. The last Laker to do it was Elgin Baylor in 1962. The only other two players to have scored at least 50pts three games in a row? Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. MJ did it in 1988. Wilt had 3 games in a row scoring at least 50pts...10 times. Wilt also has the record for most 50pt games in a row with seven. This was Kobe's 4th 60pt game, which means that half of his career 60pt games (at that time) had come in his last 3 games. That's Luke Walton at the beginning of the edit saying "Laker 9, now in HD". Pau Gasol would be stolen by the Lakers in February of the next season.
Kobe: 60pts (20-37) 5reb 4ast
Lamar: 20pts 15reb 4ast 3stl
Pau: 35pts (17-23) 15reb 2ast 1blk
