Yes, he did defeat Lee easily. Gaara's only problem was that for most of the match Lee was moving to fast for him to hit., Still even with that speed, Lee only had 2 moves that could do any damage to Gaara. Gaara escaped both of these. Gaara was shocked that Lee even had the potential to hurt him, that's why he was acting like that at the end. As soon as Gaara had an opening he ended the fight quickily. Yes it is true Lee may have done better if he used a different strategy. Yes it is true that Gaara had some element of luck in his win. But the fact remains at the end of the fight Gaara only had, at most, a few bruises, while Lee may never be able to fight again. If there's that much difference in injuries at the end, you can tell the fight was never even close.
Just so you know, Lee is one of my favorite characters in Naruto. I can admit he was totally outclassed. The sad thing is Ino could have beaten Gaara if she was quick enough with her mind transfer. She could just make gaara say I give up. Of course after Ino returned to her body Gaara would just kill her, but he'd still lose.
