It's been a bummer of a summer for Cavs fans. First the loss to Golden State, then LeBron leaving for the Lakers. 

Well, Cleveland, we may have a (small) chance to take back some of what California has taken from us. The Las Vegas Summer League tournament is winding down, and the semifinals Monday night feature the 12-seeded Cavaliers against the top-seeded Lakers in the final four. 

The Lakers are led by Josh Hart, who is averaging 21.6 points, more than any other player in Vegas. And they also have the best basketball player on the planet rooting them on (those shorts, tho).

The Cavs have a rising young star in rookie  Collin Sexton , the fresh face in the team's post-LeBron era. The 19-year-old is averaging 18.3 points and 3.7 assists in the summer league, which are the best on the team.

Tip-off for Monday night's semifinals game between the Lakers and Cavs is at 8:30 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on ESPN2.
