LOS ANGELES (AP) LeBron James scored 24 points for the Los Angeles Lakers in his wild home debut, which included three players getting ejected for fighting late in the fourth quarter of the Houston Rockets' 124-115 victory Saturday night.

Chris Paul and the Lakers' Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo were tossed with 4:13 to play after a prolonged series of confrontations that put an ugly end on a celebratory night for Lakers fans eager to welcome James to the West Coast.

The game was close until Ingram was called for a foul while trying to defend an aggressive drive by James Harden, who finished with 36 points. The normally mild-mannered Ingram shoved Harden and then confronted referee Jason Phillips after getting a technical foul.
