NBA RECAP

By: GREG BEACHAM – LOS ANGELES (AP) LeBron James savored every bump from Kobe Bryant in the low post. He relished every down-court sprint, every big shot – and even the fake that left him sailing helplessly through the air while Kobe pivoted around him for a layup.
The farewell duel between two of the greatest players in NBA history was quality entertainment, even for the two men involved.
“I wish I could play against him every single night,” James said. “Just that competitive juice, that feeling of just going against one of the greatest, you can never take that for granted.”
James scored 24 points while sharing a court with Bryant for the final time, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 120-108 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night.
Bryant, who will retire after the season, had 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting. He ignored his constantly sore right shoulder to make sure he didn’t miss his 22nd meeting with James on an NBA court, albeit never in the playoffs.
“It was just fun,” Bryant said. “I enjoy the physicality of it. Playing against him is fun because of his size. It’s always fun to bump with him and to have that physicality, backing him down and driving and bumping. That’s fun.”
After a pregame chat and hug with the crowd on its collective feet just to watch pregame warmups, Bryant and James both had vintage individual moments in the final edition of this friendly rivalry.
Bryant got a raucous standing ovation in the first quarter after that graceful post move, faking James out of his shoes and stepping around him.
“It was everything for a competitor like myself,” James said. “I know he was not taking this game off for sure, and I definitely wasn’t taking it off. It was great to be out there.”
Kyrie Irving scored 26 points and Channing Frye had 21 for the Cavaliers, who have won on the first two stops of their four-game West Coast road trip. Irving needled Bryant after a short free throw, and Kobe responded by guarding the youngster.
“It’s just great to have that mentorship out on the floor, but our relationship goes (further) off the court than it does on the floor,” said Irving, who recalled challenging Bryant to a 1-on-1 game at U.S. national team camp. “But to play against him one last time here in the Staples, it means a lot. I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.”
Bryant and James have been parallel superstars for the past 13 seasons. The U.S. national team teammates are the No. 3 and No. 13 scorers in NBA history, with 30 combined All-Star selections and seven championship rings.
