Skip Bayless took a double swipe on LeBron James and Talen Horton-Tucker during the Lakers-Nets game, as the TV analyst called them out for their shooting.
In particular, Bayless said he can see why LeBron James likes THT as they both are unable to shoot the basket. The Lakers were able to prevail over the mighty Brooklyn Nets Saturday despite being without James and Davis.
Horton-Tucker put up 16 points and had a huge defensive impact for his team vs. Brooklyn, however he only shot 4-out-of-16 from the field. The Lakers’ promising guard/forward will have to work on his jumper going forward.
However, Bayless seems to be incorrect in the case of LeBron James, who is having a great season shooting the ball on 51.3% clip from the field, and 36.8% from beyond the arc.
