Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin each scored 21 points, and the Los Angeles Lakers rallied to beat the Charlotte Hornets 107-92 Sunday night for their first victory of the season after five straight losses.

Carlos Boozer added 16 points in Byron Scott's first win as Lakers coach. Their victory left Philadelphia as the NBA's only winless team at 0-7.

Lin and Boozer's offense dominated the third, when the Lakers were down by seven before a 25-6 run sent them into the fourth leading 76-64.

It was a lead they never gave up.

Al Jefferson scored 23 points and Kemba Walker added 17 for the Hornets, whose two-game winning streak ended. Gary Neal added 14 off the bench and Lance Stephenson had 10 rebounds.
