Lakers 112, Cavs 57

No, really. The Lakers set a team record for the fewest points given up in a game played with a 24-second shot clock. It had been 66 points. They also threatened the franchise’s largest margin of victory, which remains 63 points. Their biggest lead was 56 late in the game. They won their fifth in a row and their seventh in eight games. Andrew Bynum and Ron Artest each scored 15 points for the Lakers. Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant, Shannon Brown and Lamar Odom added 13. Gasol also had a team-leading 14 rebounds. Derek Fisher scored 10. Artest, Bryant and Fisher left to a standing ovation late in the third quarter. Cleveland shot 29.9 percent. It was that kind of night.
