It was just an amazing game.  Wiz had a nice lead but blew it and it went into overtime where Gil himself outscored the Lakers 16-15.

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

LOS ANGELES -- Gilbert Arenas set a franchise record with 60 points, 16 of them in overtime, to lead the Washington Wizards to a 147-141 victory over Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

In a Kobe-like performance, Arenas outscored the Lakers' Bryant by 15 points.

The Wizards' guard went 17-of-32 from the floor, including 5-of-12 from 3-point range. He made 21 of his 27 free throws and also had eight assists and eight rebounds.

He scored 14 points in a row for Washington, including a pair of 3-pointers, in one stretch of the 5-minute overtime.

Bryant, coming off a 53-point performance his previous game, had 45 points on 15-of-24 shooting, but had just four points in overtime.

Antawn Jamison had 25 points and 13 rebounds for Washington, and Caron Butler scored 27. Vladimir Radmanovic, starting in place of the injured Lamar Odom for the Lakers, had 27 points, and Luke Walton had 15 points and a career-high 11 assists.

The previous franchise high was 56 by Earl Monroe on Feb. 13, 1968, against the Lakers in overtime, when the Wizards were the Baltimore Bullets.

Ha ha, in your face Kobe.  You know he's been hating life since the Lakers went from dynasty to disaster.
