http://www.youtube.com/embed/9nFvLWGpQco3 If you did not stay up to see the Cavaliers take on the Los Angeles Lakers, we have you covered with the lone highlight. Cleveland Cavaliers high-flying forward Alonzo Gee provided Staples Center fans a put-back dunk against the hometown Lakers.  Gee finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and three steals, but the Cavaliers would fall to the Lakers by 20 points, 113-93, snapping Los Angeles’ six-game losing streak. Kudos to the Lakers’ broadcast team for claiming that the dunk occurred because Gee was being guarded by cement-shoed point guard Steve Nash. On the season, Gee has started all 39 games for the Cavaliers and has averaged 11.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals. Gee had a bit of a cult following last season around the time that the Slam Dunk Contest rolled around, but failed to get any recognition for his above-the-rim antics.
