81!

You may not like him but… this was phenomenal. From the front page coverage in the LAT:

Jackson, who coached Jordan and played against Chamberlain, called Bryant’s performance “something to behold.”

“I wasn’t keeping track on what he had, and when I turned to [assistant Frank Hamblen] and said, ‘I think I better take him out now,’ … he said, ‘I don’t think you can. He has 77 points,’ ” Jackson said. “So we stayed with it until he hit 80.”
