The Los Angeles Lakers were most recently defeated by the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center and the outcome of the game should be very concerning to the defending NBA champions, according to sports analyst Skip Bayless.
The co-host of UNDISPUTED again pointed at fourth quarter struggles of LeBron James who is supposed to be the closer for the Lakers. More worrisome, according to Bayless, is the fact that the superstar is having disastrous fourth quarters regularly.
“I have bad news: The Lakers should be very concerned. What happened against Golden State was not a rare occurrence for LeBron James, it’s been a trend. LeBron has been a disaster in 4th quarters,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED.
With eleven wins and four losses, the Lakers are currently second in the Western Conference just behind the Clippers that have the same record.
