LeBron James was asked about Jamal Murray’s flagrant foul late in the fourth quarter. The Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar said he didn’t want Murray out of the game.

Also, he expressed his belief that the Nuggets’ guard foul was unintentional.

“I don’t care about Flagrant 1s or Flagrant 2s. I don’t want him to come out of the game. I like the competition. … I don’t think he did it on purpose,” James said on the incident, via Ben Golliver.

The Lakers and the Nuggets series will return on Thursday for Game 4.
