Lakers are trashed by Cavaliers, and by angry fans -- latimes.com If this didn't throw some caution into the lovely prose cataloging the Lakers' steamroller of a season, would anything? The Lakers were uninspiring and unexciting, in case their angry, booing fans didn't prove the point during a thorough 102-87 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday at Staples Center. The Lakers lost their cool -- Kobe Bryant seemed edgy and off-kilter the entire game, and Lamar Odom got ejected in the fourth quarter -- and their fans followed suit, hurling about 50 promotional foam- finger giveaways on to the court with 4 minutes 4 seconds to play and the Lakers down 18. The game was briefly delayed and, despite pleas from longtime in-house announcer Lawrence Tanter, more foam fingers were tossed from the stands after another foul was called with 3:45 to play. A few plastic bottles, filled with liquid, were also thrown onto the court. Staples Center security guards assumed a more aggressive posture, several of them moving to the corners of the court and behind both benches. Happy holidays, indeed. "It wasn't a very nice way to spend Christmas day, to tell you the truth," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said.
