How To Complete King Of Sac

Moment

  • Western Conference Semifinals, Game 4 — May 13, 2001

Situation

  • The Los Angeles Lakers swept the Sacramento Kings in the Western Conference Semifinals behind Kobe Bryant’s 48 points and 16 rebounds.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Score 48 points
  • Grab 10 rebounds

The trick to completing all of the tasks in one attempt is to control Kobe Bryant for the entire game. On defense, ease off your matchup to play halfway in the painted area to be in a good position to grab a defensive rebound. If Shaquille O’Neal is on the court, it’ll be difficult to outrebound him. Most of the rebounds will come when he goes to the bench.

How To Complete Hail Of Threes

Moment

  • Regular Season – January 7, 2003

Situation

  • Kobe Bryant set the NBA record for most three-pointers in a single game, connecting on 12 three-pointers against the Seattle Supersonics.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Hit 12 threes and shoot at least 50 percent from three-point range
  • Win by 20 or more

Luckily, two of the three conditions involve winning the game. And if you’re making 12 three-pointers in a game then odds are you’re not only going to win, but you’re going to win by a lot. Use pick-and-rolls to create space against Kobe Bryant’s defender and quickly launch three-pointers.

How To Complete Torch Passed

Kobe Bryant facing off against Michael Jordan

Moment

  • Regular Season – March 28, 2003

Situation

  • Kobe Bryant’s last game versus Michael Jordan on the Washington Wizards. Bryant put on one more show and scored 55 points, with a Lakers team-record 42 coming in the second half.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Score 19 points in the first quarter and 55 total points
  • Hold Michael Jordan under 20 points and get three steals

Holding Michael Jordan under 20 points isn’t the real problem of the conditions, it’s the three steals. It’s easy to get whistled for a reach-in foul, so the best times to attempt a steal is straight off the inbound.

How To Complete 62 In 3

Moment

  • Regular Season – December 20, 2005

Situation

  • Against the Dallas Mavericks, Kobe Bryant scored 62 points in just three quarters, outscoring the entire Mavericks team.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Score 62 points in the first three quarters
  • Attempt 10 free throws in the first three quarters

Scoring 62 points in only three quarters might seem daunting, but quarters for this Mamba Moment are eight minutes long. That’s two extra minutes for each quarter to rack up the points. The hardest part of the challenge is attempting the free throws as the refs might not call many fouls.

How To Complete Scoring Machine

Moment

  • Regular Season – March 16, 2007

Situation

  • This is the second highest-scoring game of Kobe Bryant’s career, launching the start of a four-game stretch where he scored at least 50 points.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Score 65 points and shoot at least 50 percent from the field
  • Hold Brandon Roy under 15 points and get three steals

Similar to the Michael Jordan Mamba Moment, the most difficult part of the challenge is getting three steals. Holding Brandon Roy might be a bit more challenging compared to Jordan because he’s younger.

How To Complete A New Era

Moment

  • Western Conference Finals, Game 5 – Mary 29, 2008

Situation

  • In the clinching game, Kobe Bryant scored 39 points to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to their first NBA Finals appearance in four years.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Score 39 points
  • Get three assists and shoot at least 50 percent from the field

This Mamba Moment might be the easiest with only the assists and field-goal percentage showing the most challenge. Utilize pick-and-rolls to fish your big man assists and drive to the basket for high-percentage shots.

How To Complete Will To Win

Moment

  • NBA Finals, Game 7 – June 17, 2010

Situation

  • Kobe Bryant willed the Los Angeles Lakers in a hard-fought defensive battle against the Boston Celtics to win his fifth and final NBA championship.

Conditions To Clear

  • Win the game
  • Grab ten rebounds
  • Hold Ray Allen under 15 points

Ray Allen is a dangerous three-point shooter, so you’ll need to stay close to him on defense. If the Lakers have a comfortable lead, you can also pull another player off their defensive assignment and essentially double-team Allen.
