CLEVELAND — These are the Lakers, for worse or for worse.
No defense, boring offense, few victories, little entertainment.
They took another beating Tuesday night, setting a new standard for lowly losses this season by falling to the already fallen Cleveland Cavaliers, 100-94, at Quicken Loans Arena.
They tumbled to 12th in the Western Conference — 12th? 12th! — after losing to a team that was 4-17. They've lost three straight and five of six and are 9-13, two games behind Denver for the suddenly coveted eighth spot in the West, though they'd have to fight through Minnesota, Houston and Portland to get there.
But, hey, who's counting?
There are really only two things the Lakers can do at this point because nothing else is working.
Wait for Pau Gasol and Steve Nash to return. And, hope they improve dramatically.
The stats were all too familiar from their other losses, almost too mundane to go over again: 19 turnovers, 41.3% shooting, 62.5% free-throw accuracy.
