Lakers look to regroup against lowly Cleveland

February 15, 2011 |  1:30 pm

The Lakers took Tuesday off, the practice that had been scheduled just a voluntary workout.

There was no media availability, so there was no chance to see who showed up for the session.

But after back-to-back drubbings, it probably wouldn't have been a bad idea for the entire team to at least get a workout in -- even for a tired team that just played four games in five nights.

The Lakers lost to the Orlando Magic on Sunday by 14 points and then were road kill for the Charlotte Bobcats Monday night during a 20-point beat-down.

The Lakers will finish their seven-game, 13-day trip Wednesday against the 9-46 Cleveland Cavaliers, the team with the worst record in the NBA.

"We're not playing well," Pau Gasol said after Monday night's loss. "We've got to get off this way of playing right now that we just did against Orlando and here tonight [in Charlotte]. We have to finish off the trip well in Cleveland."
