5. Bucks at Lakers – January 11th, 2008.

The fifth-best game Kobe Bryant ever had against the Milwaukee Bucks was a spectacular game for Kobe, even in one of his best seasons.

Kobe dropped 37 points on the Bucks, along with seven assists, five rebounds and two steals. 25 field goal attempts is a lot for most players, but when you can shoot 48 percent from the field despite taking that many shots like Kobe did against the Bucks that night, then you’re allowed to keep shooting.

Kobe very nearly outscored his minutes played that game, ending with 37 of each stat. Despite losing his ability to stay efficient at high volume in recent seasons, Kobe had a good all-around shooting game and hit five of his nine threes.

He also nailed all of his free throws, which was common for Bryant against Milwaukee. Kobe has more games against the Bucks where he was perfect on free throw attempts (15) then he does where he made less than 90 percent of his foul shots (eight). Remarkably, Bryant never made less than 80 percent of his free throws against the Bucks.

In a very unsurprising conclusion to this game, the Lakers won in front of their home crowd.
