The Lakers visited the Cavs and lost on the road 94-90, to add a loss to the Lakers record that is now 15-10. I thought the Lakers were a lock for this game, especially with the latest lack luster play from the Cavaliers, but I was wrong. LeBron James was on the ball in this game, with 33 points and 10 boards. LJ will be the one who gets his team back on track, but it is going to take a lot of points and hard minutes from him to do so.

Andrew Bynum is really impressing me and finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds. The Lakers played Bynum more than the Cavs played LeBron. Now that tells me that Phil Jackson trusts the center (who is averaging a double-double with 11.1 points and 10 boards) and wants him to continue to improve his game.
