Who do you think had a better night?
Kobe – 61 points breaks the scoring record at MSG
Lebron – first player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975 to tally a triple-double while also scoring 50-plus points. (scratch that, no trip/dub – the League took the 10th rebounds away from LeBron and gave it to Ben Wallace)
