Complex Says: For 25 years, Bernard King held the MSG scoring record with his 60 point explosion against the lowly Nets on Christmas Day 1984. Of course many folks thought that Michael Jordan's "Double Nickel" in '95 was the best performance, but Kobe put any such debate to rest with one torrid performance. 19-31 from the field, 20-20 from the line and a pivot that made Spike Lee double over with laughter. Wilson Chandler almost fell over. After the game, Spike and Kobe spent the night editing his documentary, Kobe Doin Work, where surely they discussed Kob's "Two Quarters, Dime and a Penny." Doesn't have nearly the same ring to it, but it was just as pretty.
