NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Kobe Bryant's torrid scoring streak continues. He's making 50-point games look routine, scoring exactly 50 in the LA Lakers' 111-105 win over New Orleans.

Bryant is only the second NBA player to score at least 50 in four straight games. Bryant had scored 65, 50 and 60 in his previous three games, all Lakers victories.

Only Wilt Chamberlain has exceeded that mark, scoring at least 50 points in seven consecutive games during the 1961-62 season.

Bryant calmly made all 16 free throws he attempted. He was 16 of 29 from the field.

Tyson Chandler had 22 points and 22 rebounds for New Orleans.
