LA Lakers defeat Cleveland Cavaliers 112-57. I guess that LeBron James fellow makes a difference. With the Cavaliers having gone 7-2 against the Lakers in their past nine games, without James that streak was definitely not going to continue.

The Lakers set a franchise record with fewest points allowed in the regular season game (the previous record was 66 points), and their 55-point margin of victory was the third highest in franchise history. Both Ron Artest and Andrew Bynum led the Lakers scoring with 15 points each while some guy named Alonzo Gee led the Cavs with 12 points (apparently he's a 'Bama guy.)

Perhaps the best thing to happen in this game: Kobe Bryant played for only 25 minutes while taking only 10 shots.
