Every once in a while Kobe Bryant reminds us how amazingly athletic he actually is. Bryant may not throw down thunderous dunks like he used to, but on occasion he’ll bust out some pretty sweet finishes. Thursday night during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 116-94 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Bryant scored 33 points in three quarters and wasn’t needed in the fourth on Thursday night. He was 13-of-22 from the field, with five rebounds, five assists and two steals. Bryant had two sick throw-downs on the night, and then had another great finish at the rim plus a foul. Check out the videos after the jump.
In the first quarter, Bryant drove right by Derrick Williams and dunked right over Nikola Pekovic.
In the second quarter, Bryant drove the length of the court, went right by Ricky Rubio and threw down the best dunk we’ve seen from him in a while.
Later in the second, Bryant snuck past Luke Ridnour before getting into the lane. He rose up to dunk it again, but instead took a hard foul from Chris Johnson and managed to lay the ball in before heading to the free throw line.
