Sports analyst Skip Bayless was critical of LeBron James’ decisions during the final 3 and a half minutes of the Lakers game against the Pacers. The Western Conference leaders lost by five points (111-116), as LeBron chose to pass the ball instead of attacking the basket himself.
“What are the Lakers doing? Down the stretch, LeBron did next to nothing. It’s crucial they find a winning, closing formula. And now the Lakers are the worst shooting & scoring team in the Bubble,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED.
James was the top scorer for the Lakers with 31 points. He also had 8 rebounds and 7 assists. LeBron was followed by Quinn Cook, who had 21 points. Meanwhile, superstar Anthony Davis scored just 8 points in what was another disappointing game for him.
