With the scoring countdown underway, one milestone flew under the radar on Sunday night. Bryant became the first player in NBA history to score 30,000 points and dish out 6,000 assists.

After an impressive performance against the Toronto Raptors in which he passed 6,000-assist mark, Kobe spoke to the media about the milestone saying the following, via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Kobe put on a show against the Raptors once again at the Staples Center. Bryant lit up Kyle Lowry and company with the 20th triple-double of the season scoring a game-high 31 points, dishing out 12 assists and ripping down 11 rebounds.

Although the Raptors threatened to take control of the game in the second half, Kobe remained reluctant to suffer another loss on his home floor. Bryant scored turned it on in the fourth and it carried over into overtime with the superstar leading the Lakers to victory, 129-122.

The Lakers will hit the road after winning the last matchup of their four-game homestand. Kobe and company will take on the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday, followed by matchups against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday and the Boston Celtics on Friday.
