CLEVELAND (AP) — Kobe Bryant’s final game in Cleveland was reduced to a sideshow when Cavaliers forward Kevin Love reinjured his surgically repaired left shoulder in the first half of a 120- 111 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.

Kyrie Irving scored a season high 35 points and LeBron James 29 for the Cavs, who head into the All-Star break with one of their “Big 3” injured.

Curry had 26 points, nine rebounds and nine assists for the defending NBA champions. At 48-4, the Warriors have the best record through 52 games in NBA history, one win better than the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls and 1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers.

Rajon Rondo added 14 points, eight rebounds and 15 assists for the Kings, who snapped a four game losing streak overall and six game skid on the road while winning for just the second time in their last 10. It also allowed Sacramento to enter the break on a positive note following a tumultuous week that included rumors of the impending dismissal of coach George Karl.

Rookie Jahlil Okafor tied his career high with 26 points to go with 10 rebounds, and Robert Covington scored a career-high 29 points for the 76ers, who played without top big man Nerlens Noel.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Will Barton scored 15 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, and Denver held off depleted Detroit, which was without three starters.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been out with a core muscle strain, and the team announced before the game that Reggie Jackson and Ersan Ilyasova had been ill and would be sidelined as well.

Denver led by eight early in the fourth, but the Pistons closed to 83- 82 after consecutive 3-pointers by Anthony Tolliver. Randy Foye made a 3 to halt that run, and Denver was able to hold onto its lead the rest of the way.
