Lakers notch first win of season


LOS ANGELES: Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin scored 21 points apiece on Sunday (Monday in Manila) as the Los Angeles Lakers nabbed their first win of the NBA season, a 107-92 decision over Charlotte. The Lakers, whose 0-5 start was the worst since the club moved to Los Angeles, hadn’t lost six straight to open a season since the 1957-58 Lakers—then based in Minneapolis—lost their first seven. While the current Lakers have avoided a repeat of that dismal start—or worse—Bryant and Lin both said they have a lot of work to do if they want to win consistently.
