Kobe leads Lakers past Grizz for 4th straight win

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kobe Bryant scored all of his 23 points in the first half, Pau Gasol had 21 points and 13 rebounds against his 7-foot-1 kid brother, and the Los Angeles Lakers routed the Memphis Grizzlies 124-105 on Tuesday night for their fourth straight win to open the season.

Lamar Odom had 17 points and eight rebounds for unbeaten Los Angeles, while Bryant fell one minute short of matching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to become the Lakers' franchise leader in minutes played because he sat out the fourth quarter.

Rudy Gay scored 30 points and Mike Conley had 16 points and eight assists after agreeing to a 5-year, $40 million contract extension earlier Tuesday with the Grizzlies, who opened a 4-game road trip with their fourth straight road loss to the 2-time champions.
