CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Cavaliers (8-35?) play the Los Angeles Lakers (23-20?) tonight in Los Angeles. It’s the Cavaliers second game of a six-game road trip and a chance to end a 12-game losing streak.
Similar to the Cavaliers, the Lakers are experiencing life without LeBron James. James hurt his groin against the Golden State Warriors on Christmas day and in the nine games since then the Lakers’ record is 3-6?
The Cavs record since James left Cleveland for the second time is 8-35? Once again, Cleveland seems headed towards picking high in the NBA draft like they did the four years after James went to Miami in 2010.
At least the Lakers know their life without LeBron is temporary. On the other hand, the Cavs know they’ve got to make it work on their own somehow.
