LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Kobe Bryant notched a triple-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists Sunday in the Los Angeles Lakers' 119-108 win over Houston.

Dwight Howard added 28 points to go with 13 rebounds as the Lakers -- who are still awaiting the debut of new Coach Mike D'Antoni -- won their fourth in five games.

D'Antoni was scheduled to coach his first game Sunday but put it off as he continues to recover from knee replacement surgery earlier this month.

Los Angeles fell behind 11-6 in the early going but then outscored the Rockets 34-18 to finish the first quarter and never trailed after that.

Pau Gasol added 17 points, Metta World Peace put in 15 and Darius Morris contributed 12 for Los Angeles, which shot 54.1 percent from the field.

Chandler Parsons put in 24 points and James Harden added 20 with seven rebounds as the Rockets lost their third time in four contests.
