Kobe briefly flashes vintage form

For a few minutes, Kobe Bryant looked like the MVP of old, putting up 13 points in the first quarter and making 3 of his first 4 shots.

Jahlil Okafor on Kobe Bryant: "Its different. Its just different. Ive played against LeBron James twice, you see KD (Kevin Durant) but when you see Kobe its just a different feel. I was in the weight room stretching and he walks in. It was like youre seeing like a God kind of in a sense. For me that was my Michael Jordan. That was somebody that I always watched. You see him score 81 points, you see him win championships and I was always rooting for him to win, so it was surreal to see him."
