Lakers Dismantle Cavaliers 112-57

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – Pau Gasol led a balanced attack with 13 points and 14 rebounds, as the Los Angeles Lakers used suffocating defense in a record-setting 112-57 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Lakers set a franchise regular-season record for fewest points scored by an opponent in a game. The previous mark was set on March 12, 2002, when Los Angeles held Charlotte to 66 points.

Ron Artest and Andrew Bynum each had 15 points for the Lakers, whose 55-point margin of victory proved to be the third-largest in Los Angeles history. Kobe Bryant, Lamar Odom and Shannon Brown chipped in with 13 points apiece.

Alonzo Gee finished with 12 points and eight rebounds to pace the Cavaliers, who set a franchise-low for points in a game. The previous record was 59 points, set March 25, 1997 against San Antonio.

Ramon Sessions added 10 points for the Cavs, who have lost 17 in a row on the road. Cleveland, which shot 29.9 percent from the field, has also lost 11 in a row overall.
