CLEVELAND (AP) — Kevin Love scored a season-high 32 points, LeBron James flirted with a triple-double and the Cleveland Cavaliers quickly got back to winning with a 120-105 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
The Cavs had their 12-game winning streak snapped Friday, a run that started when they beat the Lakers on Jan. 15. This time, Love made five 3-pointers in the second quarter and two more in the third as Cleveland opened a 26-point lead.
James scored 22 with 10 rebounds and eight assists in three quarters. All-Star guard Kyrie Irving added 28 points and 10 assists.
Rookie Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 20 for the Lakers, who matched a franchise worst with their 10th straight road loss. Los Angeles hasn’t won away from Staples Center since Dec. 30 at Denver. The Lakers also lost 10 in a row on the road in 1957-58 and 1963-64.
