LA Lakers Video: Watch the Lakers Lose To the Lowly Cleveland Cavaliers

LA Lakers video is here, and we're taking a good, long look at last night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

So...what happened, fellas? This is a team that Los Angeles pounded into the dirt at Staples Center earlier in the season.

I know that Los Angeles has had a brutal road stretch as of late, but this is the Cavs, man. This game should have been a blowout, but the box score reads like a horror film.

Derek Fisher had 19 points in the game but still ended up with a minus-14 for the game. Ron Artest only played 18 minutes, attempted one shot, scored one point and was a minus-13. There isn't much you can say about that stat line. Kobe Bryant put 17 points up but did it on 8-of-24 shooting.

The only bright spots were Pau Gasol and Shannon Brown, who did their parts last night, but it wasn't enough, as Cleveland just got what it wanted on the offensive end. Ramon Sessions torched the Lakers last night, as he dropped 32 points off of the bench.

Cleveland had five guys in double figures last night, and the Cavs pulled a huge upset. Something needs to change for the Lakers, and fast. Los Angeles hasn't looked right for most of the season, and there have been questions within the team about the effort and the desire to win.

That happens with a lot of champions, but at some point, the distractions have to go away and it's time for basketball. The Lakers need to take a long look in the mirror and find out how badly they want to be champions, because if they play like this in the playoffs, it's going to be a short run.
