HONOLULU, Oct. 11 (Ticker) -- Phil Jackson's second tenure as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers got off to a pretty good start.

Kobe Bryant scored 24 of his 28 points in the first half to lead the Lakers to a 101-93 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the preseason opener for both teams.

After guiding the Lakers to three NBA titles in four seasons, Jackson left the team following the 2004 Finals amid growing disagreements with Bryant, who was second in the league in scoring (27.6) last season.
