LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kobe Bryant scored 37 points, Andrew Bynum had 21 points and 22 rebounds in the first 20-20 game of his career, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Houston Rockets 108-99 Tuesday night for their fourth victory in five games. Pau Gasol scored 14 points for the Lakers against the franchise that tried to acquire him in a three-team trade in the offseason, and the Lakers survived a tight fourth quarter with Bryant's brilliance and tough defense, holding the Rockets without a field goal for just under 6 minutes. Kobe eventually took over, scoring seven consecutive points down the stretch of the Lakers' third straight win over the Rockets at home. Kyle Lowry scored 22 points and Luis Scola added 20 for the Rockets.
