Yes, you read correctly. The Los Angeles Lakers simply blew out the Cavaliers in what was their best defensive effort this season.
The high man for the Lakers was Ron Artest who finished the game with 15 points, six assists, and five rebounds. Andrew Bynum, also, had 15 points, but had five blocks, and six rebounds.
But the Lakers won by 55 points, Kristian? How did they do that when their highest scoring player had fifteen points?
Team Basketball is my answer.
Los Angeles had seven people in double-digits. Kobe finished with 13 points, EIGHT assists, five rebounds, and two assists. “The Spaniard” Pau Gasol had a double-double, with 13 points, 14 rebounds, 3 steals, and a block. The others who scored in double digits for the Lakers were Shannon Brown (13), Lamar Odom (13), and Derek Fisher (10).
As for the Cavs… The struggle continues.
They’ve lost 20 of their last 21 games. The only two players in double digits for Cleveland were Alonzo Gee, with 12 points, and Ramon Sessions, who had ten.
When LeBron caught wind of this beating, he posted on Twitter:
“Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!”
