Kobe Bryant scored 29 points Wednesday night in a 103-87 drubbing of the New Orleans Hornets by the Los Angeles Lakers, in the process becoming the fifth player in NBA history — and the youngest since Wilt Chamberlain — to score 30,000 career points.

The Hornets defense fended off Bryant’s attacks for nearly seven minutes in a strong first half showing, holding him scoreless until 5:14 left in the first quarter.
