Bryant leads Lakers to 98-92 win over Rockets

HOUSTON (AP) Kobe Bryant has been insisting the Los Angeles Lakers are a much better team than their terrible start indicated.

For the past two nights, the Lakers have shown he might be right.

Bryant had 29 points, Wesley Johnson made key free throws down the stretch and the Lakers took advantage of Dwight Howard's absence Wednesday in a 98-92 victory over the Houston Rockets.
