4. Bucks at Lakers – November 24th, 2002

Kobe scored less in this game then he did in the others that made this list, but this win over the Bucks is unique for Bryant. It was the only time he recorded a triple-double against Milwaukee in some 39 games against the Bucks.

Kobe totaled 15 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and a steal in his 41 minutes against the Bucks that night. It may not have been the most dominating triple-double Kobe ever posted, but it’s tough to top some of the crazy games he’s had throughout his career.

In a rare off game for Kobe from distance he missed all three of his three-pointers. In a very typical game for Kobe against the Milwaukee Bucks, he nailed all three of his free throws and half of his shots from within the arc.

Kobe’s all-around dominance in this game helped seal the easy victory for the Los Angeles Lakers, who were defending champions for the third straight season that year.

It’s no surprise the Bucks were unable to best Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe, even if the pair had already won the last of their NBA championships together by this point.
