The Los Angeles Lakers’ most recent embarrassment came in the form of a 100-94 road loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Yes, the same Cleveland Cavaliers who before last night had lost 17 of their previous 21 games.
Kobe Bryant scored 42 points (on 16-of-28 shooting) for the losing side. Dwight Howard chipped in 19 points and 20 rebounds. (The Lakers won the rebounding battle 54-43.) Metta World Peace had 13 points on five-of-13 shooting. No other Lakers players finished in double figures. (Chris Duhon finished with two points and three assists in 33 minutes.)
Kyrie Iving and C.J. Miles led the way for Cleveland with 28 points apiece.
