Guards D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson, and forward Julius Randle are perceived as the future of the Lakers. But Kobe Bryant remains the player that makes the fans go wild.Bryant on Thursday night scored a team-high 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting. The real story was that Bryant threw down a mean driving dunk that began from about 20 feet out that brought down the Staples Center house.It came during a 107-87 loss to the Houston Rockets before 18,997. But it was the main source of discussion post-game because Bryant had not dunked since he tore up his shoulder dunking in a game against New Orleans during the 2014-15 season.“That’s the first time, I think, since the dunk in New Orleans last year where he hurt his shoulder that I’ve seen him dunk,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. • RELATED: Ariza credits Lakers’ Kobe for his developmentBryant, who also had eight rebounds, was asked if any of the Rockets had a reaction to his impressive slam.“Yeah, ‘You’ve got two more years at least,’ ” Bryant said, smiling. His response to that was, “Nah, I’m good.”Bryant has announced he will retire at the end of this season. But he couldn’t help but enjoy something he hasn’t done in some time. Scott said that even in practice, Bryant does layups instead of dunks.“My legs felt lively and they felt springy,” Bryant said. “I don’t know where it came from, but it was there. I can’t really explain it.” Bryant’s dunk brought his team within 54-46 with 9:25 to play in the third quarter. The fans went berserk.“Nothing really went through my mind,” Scott said, “but after he dunked it, I was kind of like, ‘Whoa, where did that come from?’”Rookie D’Angelo Russell was on the bench at the time and absorbed a technical foul after he responded to Bryant’s dunk by running the baseline and stepping onto the court.“It was awesome,” Bryant said. “It’s the best tech D’Angelo will ever get.”• PHOTOS: Bryant scores 22 points in 107-97 loss to HoustonBryant was laughing.“He said, ‘Hey, man, you’ve got to pay my tech on that one,’ “ Bryant said. “I said, ‘Ah, you ran the baseline of your own free will.’ (Rockets) Trevor (Ariza) and James (Harden) and those guys were pretty funny, too. They had a good time with it.”Russell was funny afterward.“I think I got a tech,” he said. “I took off and ran across the baseline. I tried to get back before the refs see me. I caught Denzel Washington’s attention and I was like, I don’t know what I did. The ref caught me. How much am I going to get fined?”But the fun had to end at some point, and that came during the fourth quarter.The Lakers (4-22), who trailed 78-68 entering the fourth quarter, cut their deficit to just five points (81-76) with 9:02 to play on a layup by Randle. Less than four minutes later, they were down by 16 at 92-76, and that was that.Scott was not happy.“We were fighting uphill all game long,” he said. “We had opportunities in the fourth quarter where we got it to single digits. And then the next seven possessions, I think we turned it over five times, so we just shot ourselves in the foot.”Randle scored 18 points and pulled down 10 rebounds for the Lakers in just 23-plus minutes. But he shot just 6 of 15 — the Lakers shot 42.9 percent as a team.“When I’m out there, I’m aggressive and I take the opportunities I can get,” said Randle, who has come off the bench the past six games. “Just try to be aggressive at all times.”Lou Williams contributed 14 points, Jordan Clarkson 12 and Larry Nance Jr. 11. Russell had seven assists, but shot just 1 of 9 and had two points.Harden led Houston (13-14) with 25 points. He also had six rebounds and six assists. Dwight Howard had 15 points and 16 rebounds, and Terrence Jones scored 16 off the bench.The Rockets, who outrebounded the Lakers 54-46, had 23 offensive rebounds.“We don’t have the luxury of having guys who can jump out of the gym and can just turn and go get it,” Scott said. “So it’s basically fundamentals 101. Shot goes up, turn, locate your man, get him or at least go get the ball. We’re ball-watching.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
