Lets be honest...although the Cavs have been playing better of late...and I know they're home...but this is an NBA contender who beat this team by like 90 in their last meeting.

I also understand the revenge factor and all that schit...but come on now. How big of an upset is this...really?

Big but not that big. Remember, this is the NBA.

Not that big.  Lakers can lose any day in February.  We'll see come June.  I took Cleveland +11 and I liked the ML, but couldn't do it since it was so far fetched.

lol, in terms of nba history it is a very insignificant game.  An upset, but it probably doesn't make any 'all time' lists.

Not much of an upset, we all know the Lakers haven't hit any stride at all this year and they were gassed after B2B Boston/NY.

Are you kidding me? The Lakers arent even the 4th best team in the league right now (San Antonio, Boston when healthy, Miami, flip flop Dallas or Chicago).

Upset? Are you kidding me....this is nothing more than a shock thread.

This is the NBA, not a big upset at all
If the Cavs beat the Lakers in LA, then it is an upset.  Lakers been on the road for a while & are tired.  Not even a top 10 upset

It's an upset but I said Cleveland would get it done during the fakers game versus the bobcats so it isn't like it was unexpected.

when did a team that has lost its last 2 games in blowouts then lose AGAIN on the road in their 5th or 6th straight road game become an upset?...like seriously

The love affair for an above average Lakers team on here is disgusting. Just BET against them and win money hand over fist.

Big upset. Never saw this one coming. Washington just got their first road win at Cleveland.

Does the B in NBA  stand for   BULLSHIT

Honestly, I think a few of the Cavs were playing hard as they can to maybe get traded to the lakers

Hint: JJ Hickson, Antwaan

 

Hell of a game by Ramon tonight, representing Myrtle Beach

No team in the history of the NBA has lost by that much (55 points) and come back and beat the team the next game....

Biggest upset ever,,,,,
