Los Angeles Lakers fans and players were given a slight scare in last night's game when Kobe fell to the ground holding his knee late in the third.

Bryant was being guarded by one of the great defenders in the game and unfortunately Tony Allen pulled the chair on Kobe which forced Kobe's left knee to hyper extend.

Luckily, for Kobe and everyone else who enjoys the NBA, it was only a slight injury and he was able to return to the court within minutes.

Kobe had arguably his best outing since his comeback, netting 21 points and pulling down five boards.

He has only recently returned from an achilles injury suffered last April.
