Lakers Vs. Cavs Final Score: Cavaliers Give L.A. A Three-Game Losing Streak

The Cleveland Cavaliers have scored their second win in their last three games, beating the Los Angeles Lakers, 104-99. That other win was against the Los Angeles Clippers, so maybe the Cavs should just join the Pacific Division?

Ramon Sessions is your leading scorer on the night, pouring in 32 points for Cleveland, with four other players hitting double figures.

It was a wretched night for most of the Lakers top scorers, with Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, and Andrew Bynum combining for 13 points on four-for-19 shooting. Pau Gasol scored 30 points and grabbed 20 rebounds, including 10 on the offensive side — hey, how’d he get so many chances to grab offensive rebounds? — while Kobe Bryant mustered a 17-point, 12-rebound night hampered by seven turnovers.

It’s been a horrible year for Cleveland, but Cavs fans will probably enjoy this All-Star break a little bit more than Lakers fans will.

For more on this game, Lakers fans should visit Silver Screen And Roll and SB Nation Los Angeles, and Cavs fans should join Fear The Sword and SB Nation Cleveland.
