Halftime: Lakers 62, Rockets 45

HOUSTON — There was no repeat tonight of the Lakers’ feeble first half Friday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. For starters, the Lakers had almost twice as many assists in the first half against the Houston Rockets (13) as they had in the entire game against the Thunder. Kobe Bryant had six to go with 10 points in the half. Pau Gasol led the Lakers with 15 points. Lamar Odom had a team-leading 10 rebounds. Jermaine Taylor led the Rockets with 13 points. Former Laker Trevor Ariza had only four points on 2-for-7 shooting.
