Top 10 Performances In Lakers History

7: ELGIN BAYLOR vs. New York Knicks, 1960

Baylor scored 71 points against the Knicks while collecting 25 rebounds. That’s obviously impressive by itself. But the achievement was compounded by the fact that, in doing so, he broke the NBA’s then single-game scoring record of 64 points. That record had been set by Elgin Baylor. There’s nothing like outdoing a personal best that also happens to be the league-best.

6: SHAQUILLE O’NEAL vs. Philadelphia 76ers, Game 2 NBA Finals, 2001

Shaq came very close to the elusive quadruple-double in this game. And not coincidentally, it was in the NBA Finals. He stepped up to lead the Lakers towards the title with 28 points, 20 rebounds, nine assists and eight blocks in what many claim to be the defining game of his career and the defining example of the kinds of numbers Shaq was always capable of.
