NEW YORK (Reuters) - Kobe Bryant poured in a career high 62 points to power the Los Angeles Lakers to a 112-90 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday at the Staples Center.

Bryant's spectacular performance included 18-of-31 shooting from the floor and 22-of-25 from the free throw line in just 33 minutes of work guiding the surging Lakers to their eighth win in 10 games.

The night began modestly for the 27-year-old all-star, scoring 15 points in the opening quarter and adding 17 in the second before exploding for a franchise record 30 in the third quarter behind a dazzling display of shot-making.

Bryant's performance, however, fell just shy of the NBA single quarter points record of 33 set by George Gervin in 1978.

The 62 points eclipsed Bryant's previous career single game high of 56 set in 2002 against Memphis and are the most by a member of the Lakes since Shaquille O'Neal hit for 61 against the Los Angeles Clippers in 2000.

No other Los Angeles player managed to reach double figures, Chris Mihm contributing nine points and eight rebounds to the victory while Laron Profit had eight.

Dirk Nowitzki and Devin Harris both had 18 points for the Mavericks.

Kobe is one of the greatest NBA players. If he can cooperate with big guys Shaq or Yaoming in a team, it would be unstoppable.
