Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in the Lakers' 121-119 win over the Memphis Grizzlies Thursday night to become the fourth player in NBA history to score at least 50 points in three straight games.

The question now is: will he be the first to score 50 points or more in four consecutive games?

Bryant will attempt that feat when the Lakers take on the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night. Bryant scored 65 points against Portland on March 16 and 50 against Minnesota on March 18.

The last Laker with three consecutive 50-point games was Hall of Famer Elgin Baylor in December 1962. Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain are the only other players with three straight 50-point games.

"It just feels great," Bryant said of joining Baylor, Jordan and Chamberlain. "It's really special and very humbling to be in the same company."

It was the fourth 60-point game of Bryant's career, tying him with Jordan for the second-most 60-point games in a career. Chamberlain holds the record with 13. Jordan was the last NBA player to score at least 50 points in three straight games, accomplishing the feat during the 1986-87 season.

Memphis had won seven of the past 10 against the Lakers and had split two earlier meetings this season. But with Bryant scoring from every spot on the floor, the Grizzlies couldn’t keep pace.

Memphis took an 85-80 lead, its biggest of the game, late in the third quarter after consecutive 3-pointers by Mike Miller. But the Lakers battled back behind Bryant, who scored nine straight points during a 90-second stretch to put Los Angeles up 95-93. The Lakers never trailed again.

Bryant had 24 points at the half and 43 after three quarters against the Grizzlies.

Pau Gasol led Memphis with 35 points and 15 rebounds. Miller added 33 points and seven assists.

Lamar Odom was one of only two other Lakers to reach double figures. He finished with 20 points and 15 rebounds.
