Carmelo Anthony addressed the road loss of the Los Angeles Lakers to the Oklahoma City Thunder, despite their 26-point lead in the first half.

The Thunder outscored the Lakers 43-67 in the second half and sealed the deal. For his part, the multiple time NBA All-Star couldn’t explain what the Lakers did wrong and blew the lead.

“The momentum switched quick. … They kept playing the same way the whole game. … Played hard, played free. … You’ve got to tip your hat to those guys,” Carmelo Anthony said afterwards.

The veteran forward missed the chance to tie the game in the final seconds of regulation. He also noted the Lakers should forget this game and focus on Friday’s game vs the Cleveland Cavaliers.
