Lakers Stop Cavaliers

The Los Angeles Lakers came into Cleveland facing a Cavaliers team that boasted a 23-game home winning streak. They're leaving with another opponent winning streak snapped.

Lamar Odom stepped up big time, finishing with game highs of 28 points and 17 rebounds. Odom played fantastic in the third quarter, where he he single-handedly demolished the Cavaliers front line with slashes and tremendous board work. Kobe Bryant was out of sync with the flu, but he hit a gorgeous fadeaway dagger in LeBron James' grill in the final 2 minutes of the game. Sweet!

The Lakers finished the supposedly grueling 6-game road trip with a pristine 6-0 record, and beating two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference in the process.

What's next for the Lakers? Getting PT for new acquisition Adam Morrison. :P
