Following the battle of L.A where Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers went against each other at Staples center, Skip Bayless a sports columnist, critic and one of the biggest LeBron hater fired a shot towards the King after Lakers fell short to win over the Clippers.
The recent match-up of Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers was the first game for LeBron since returning from National Basketball Association’s health and safety protocols. It was a very close matchup which resulted in a 119-115 victory for Los Angeles Clippers. Players from both the teams came up when needed the most but Luke Kennard sealed the deal for his team to get the win in the final minute of the game.
LeBron and team again had a not so good offensive night where the team shot 36.4% from the 3-point line making 12 out of the 33 shots attempted and made 50.0% of the field goals attempted. On the other hand the Clippers showed a better performance in the stats and on court as well being good on both the ends since they kept the Lakers down the lead for the whole game.
Skip Bayless on LeBron James
The 70 year old well experienced sports columnist, player critic and LeBron hater again tried to take down the King by comparing him to Luke Kennard of Los Angeles Clippers who comes off the bench and is been making a difference for months. Skip in his tweet said “LeBron just got outplayed in the 4th quarter at Staples by … Luke Kennard???.”
Skip stated how Luke came up in clutch in the fourth quarter and dropped two game winning big time shots from the three point line in the final minute of the play where the game was very close since Los Angeles Lakers scored more points in the 4th quarter than the Clippers while holding tight on defense but never closed the lead. LeBron having a tough time and returning from COVID protocols of the league missed some of his shots which would have changed the game and had 23 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists at the end.
The Los Angeles Lakers started the game with a new lineup today including Dwight Howard and Talen Horton Tucker as DeAndre Jordan and Avery Bradley weren’t available. This was a good defensive lineup and even Malik Monk coming off the bench went clutch in Lakers offense from the halftime but the team never got rid of the lead which resulted in a 4 point defeat.
