Chris Carlson / APKobe Bryant put up 30 points in Tuesdays win over the Bobcats, marking his 7th straight game with at least 30 points. With this streak, Kobe became the first player in NBA history of at least 34 years of age to do so. The only other players to come close were Kareem Abdul-Jabar and Michael Jordan, whose streaks both ended at 5 straight games.Even at age 34, Kobe leads the league in scoring with 29.5 points per game. His last game with less than 30 points was in early December against the Hornets, a game in which he came up just short with 29. If he had finished with one more point in that game, his record would now stand at 10 instead of 7.So far on the season, the Mamba has eclipsed the 30 point mark in 15 out of 26 games. And for those who might argue that he is shooting too much, he has been doing so by hitting on over 47% of his shots for the year.It will be interesting to see how the return of Steve Nash (or as Kobe likes to call him, “Gatsby”) will affect Kobe’s scoring. Will Nash’s ability to create open looks improve Kobe’s scoring numbers, or will adding an additional facilitator and scoring threat take away from his attempts? It remains to be seen, but fortunately we should find out quite soon.In the meantime, Kobe will look to add to his streak on Saturday as the Lakers take on the Warriors. While keeping the streak going would be impressive, one can only assume he will be more focused on what stat shows up in the win column.The post At 34, Kobe Leads NBA, Breaks Another Record appeared first on Laker Nation.
