The Lakers once again had an early game collapse as they went down 17 points in the first quarter against the Timberwolves. Minnesota further increased its lead to 25 points in the second quarter.
LeBron James, who he led the Lakers in scoring with 19 points, like the rest of his team struggled from beyond the arc making just 1 of 8 three-pointers. Collectively Los Angeles was 10-45 from the three. According to James that is the main reason why the Lakers are one three-game losing streak.
“Teams are daring us to shoot the ball from outside and we are not making,” the four-time NBA champion said when asked if sees any pattern over the last three games.
