Default Cavs beating L.A.--what is the significance of this?

Discuss the game here.

It's clear we addressed our weaknesses that we had against this team last year, and LeBron clearly outshone Kobe. I don't want to get into who is the best player in the league and all that, but LeBron, at this point, makes a very convincing case for himself.

Our offense is still stagnant, but Bron bailed them out.

and to win without Mo/Moon--impressive.

Hope there isn't a letdown Saturday vs. OKC.

Regular season game... not much significance...

Looking forward to playing the Cavs in the NBA finals.

Agreed.......Now, and June, are two totally different animals. These wins help, and make us better that what we were before, but you guys have that finals pedigree, and we are still learning.

I anticipate my team struggling a bit without Mo. Last night was pure adreneline. Now, we have the reality of having our second leading scorer out for awhile, but the schedule gets a bit easier.

and rumors persist that we will be going after Antawn Jamison/Troy Murphy at the deadline. Lets see how that all plays out.......

Team forums here are dead so I'll chip in.

This is CLEARLY important. The Cavs have shown that:

1. They can get away with double teaming Bryant and letting Lebron roam.

2. No one can guard Lebron on the LA roster

3.Varejao is killing the Lakers on the boards.

4. Shaq cannot be stopped by Pau. He toys with him in the post.

1. Sure, as long as Kobe's pinky is still messed up. I hope it's fully healed by June. Then no one will be able to guard him on the Cavs.

2. So here are Lebron's stats from the previous 2 matchups, when Artest guards Lebron.

Game 1:

5/6 inside shots, 0/3 mid-range, 2/6 3pt-range, 2/4 ft, 3ast and 4turnovers

Game 2:
4/4 inside shots, 3/6 mid-range, 1/8 3pt-range, 1/1ft, 8ast, 2turnovers

Artest can't guard Lebron huh?

3. Verajao only killed them in game 2, with that late rebound being magnified.

4. Bynum can do a decent job on Shaq. Lakers should use DJ Mbenga to hack-a-shaq in certain stretches.
