Kobe Bryant became the youngest player to reach 30,000 career points in the NBA as he helped the Los Angeles Lakers to a 103-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday.

With 1:16 left in the second quarter, Bryant drove into the lane and rose to connect on a jump shot, taking his tally for the contest to 14 and for his career to 30,001.

''It's a huge accomplishment,'' Bryant said of becoming just the fifth player in NBA history to reach the milestone.
