Lakers Hand Cavs 1st Home Loss

By  | 

No second All-Star. No triple-double for LeBron James. And now, no more home winning streak.

It's been a rough few days for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Lamar Odom scored a season-high 28 points, Kobe Bryant added 19
and the streak-breaking Los Angeles Lakers handed Cleveland its
first loss at home this season, 101-91 on Sunday.

The Cavaliers came in 23-0 at Quicken Loans Arena, but were
stopped by the Lakers, who ended Boston's 19-game winning streak on
Christmas Day and halted a 12-game run by the Celtics earlier this

James finished with 16 points on just 5-of-20 shooting for
Cleveland, which hadn't lost at home since Game 5 against
Washington in the first round of last season's playoffs.
