LeBron James scored 26 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers humbled the Los Angeles Lakers 102-87, the home fans throwing items on the court and booing the National Basketball Association champions after the defeat.

In Florida, Boston's defence kept Orlando to a season-low 77 points as the Celtics cruised to an 86-77 win while Dwyane Wade scored 30 points in New York to complete the trio of away wins.

Wade grabbed nine rebounds to guide his Miami Heat past the Knicks 93-87, snapping the home side's three-game NBA winning streak in the process.
