Tonights victory of the Rockets made up for the disappointing lose last night to the Thunder.
Pau Gasol scored 30 points and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Houston Rockets 109-101.
Bryant came up one assist shy of a triple-double, finishing with 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.
“It was real good,” Kobe Bryant said. “We really wanted to come out and play well especially after the showing we had last night.”
Derek Fisher tied a season high with 15 points, Lamar Odom had 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Lakers, and Jordan Farmar added 14 points.
Jackson was disappointed that his team let a 20-point lead at the end of the third quarter dwindle to single digits in the fourth.
“I told them I’m not happy with the win, but we won the game,” he said. “We get outscored 32-20 in the fourth quarter. You don’t want to finish a game like that.”
