This is only the fourth triple-double for Kobe (of the 17) away from Staples Center. The Lakers are 11-5 when Bryant gets a triple-double.Bryant has made eight of 17 field goals, including 3-of-5 on three-pointers, and made eight of nine foul shots to give him 27 points. Perhaps the most impressive part of Kobe's night is the fact that he has 12 assists and zero turnovers.

This was the third triple-double of the season in the NBA, joining Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks and Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics.
