The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 128-99 for their ninth consecutive victory. LeBron James scored 23 of his 31 points in a dominant second half, and Dwight Howard added season highs of 21 points and 15 rebounds. Kevin Love had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Cleveland in the third stop of a six-game road trip. Two days after the Cavs posted a surprising win at powerhouse Denver, they couldn't keep up with a franchise icon who hasn't slowed down since moving to the West Coast.
