Brandon Ingram scored 26 points for the Lakers and he also grabbed six rebounds and recorded six assists. Lonzo Ball scored 13 points grabbed eight rebounds and recorded 11 assists. Josh Hart scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He started in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope because of personal matters.
Kyle Kuzma scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds off the bench for the Lakers. The Lakers biggest lead was nine and the Cavaliers biggest lead was 11.
