Center cured Dwight Howard  powered Lakers to end 6-game losing streak

The fact of the game :

Dwight Howard came at arena expecting to sit out another game because of his painful shoulder. But He was on the lineup.

He helped the Los Angeles Lakers to stop their longest losing streak in nearly six years. A relief for Lakers fan

Double Double Machine  did well the job :

Howard tailed a monster double double with 22 points and  14  rebounds in his return.

The Lakers ended their six-game losing streak with a 113-93 win over the leaderless team Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night.

Bryant’s barometer is working

Kobe Bryant the best scorer in the league ,chipped in 23 points for the Lakers, who collected their first victory of  new year while ending their longest losing streak since February 2007.

CLOSE-UP WITH BRYANT’S STATS IN WINS AND LOSSES

In Wins 16 36.7 .475 5.6 6.0 0.2 1.4 2.7 25.9
In Losses 21 40.2 .475 4.6 3.9 0.3 1.6 2.7 32.9

In this contest , Bryants scored less than 30 points and handed out 6 assists. Figures explain for a while Laker’s trends : If your are reluctant to trust these fantasy figures ! Don’t read notes of the game because figures are the essence of data collectors and coachs are even juggling with  keys figures to be more efficient and earn wins. Stats  talk in basketball !

Good :

Nash sank three free throws, going to a perfect 18 for 18 this season and increasing his minuscule lead on Mark Price for the best free throw percentage in NBA history.

Bad :

The Lakers topped the Cavs with an impressive total of 22 turnovers, including 18 by their starting lineup.

Dwight with 7 was pretty careless with the ball.

Player of the game : Howard

Howard with safe shoots went 9 for 11 despite his torn labrum while leading Los Angeles to an easy victory over the lowly Cavaliers, who topped the Lakers last month with a huge Kile Irving scoring 28 points and handing out 11 assists to a 100-94.

Nash played an other structured game with 10 points and nine clever assists  to rule the game.

The Lakers’s win relied on their good defensive effort, and Bryant showed the way with a tough defensive strain vs the awful Cavs.

Point guards Irving and Dion Waiters recorded both 15 points apiece for Cleveland, which has dropped seven of nine.

Alonzo Gee added 14 points for the Cavaliers, who were led by 19 points in the first quarter.

Cleveland (9-30) is barely ahead of Washington (6-28) for the NBA’s worst record.

The stat of the game :

The Lakers went 13 for 25 in deep range and collected a season high  58.0% from the floor handing out 32 assists to ruin Cavs.
