Bryant dominates as Lakers beat the Timberwolves.
Kobe Bryant was in great form again on Thursday night as he led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 116-94 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Last night’s outcome meant that this was the 21st consecutive win for the Lakers over the Timberwolves.
Bryant had 33 points on the night, the 24th time this season that he has reached the 30-point mark, as the Lakers continue their push to move into the playoff spots.
The ‘Black Mamba’ began the game with a huge dunk to let the Timberwolves know he was ready to go, before putting on a show from three-point range.
Bryant is 8-for-14 from beyond the arc in the last three games, while his team-mates have been just as effective.
The Lakers host the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, and will be eager to start building a winning streak in order to catch the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference.
