Keeping it between Byron Scott and the Lakers. You know things are bad when you lose to the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is one weary road trip that the Los Angeles Lakers will want to forget quick. Putting a 25 plus losing streak behind them and avenging a 55 point drubbing by the Lake Show earlier in the season, the Cavs took care of the Lakers 104-99. Former Laker and Cleveland coach Byron Scott ended the showtime as he sent in guard Ramon Sessions, who had a season-high 32 points to go with 8 assists off the pine and into the prime time. All the zen mater had after the game was more stress as he told press, "I think (the Lakers) took their All-Star break before the game. They left before this game started. I'm not happy with the way this trip ended, that's for sure." Kobe Bryant had a season-high 12 rebounds but was taken out the game on D by some Cavalier players. Kobe committed 7 turnovers and 4 fouls and was an old jersey/new jersey number 8 for 24, en route to 17 points. Pau Gasol may have had a big 30 points to go with Derek Fisher's 19, but the Lakers ended their 7 game road-trip with their third straight loss to the worst team in the league. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
