“LeBozo and ADisney together couldn’t do” NBA Twitter rips apart Lakers as Andrew Nembhard secures 17-point comeback victory with buzzer-beating game-winner
LeBron James and Andrew Nembhard
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have once again disappointed their fans and now are getting trolled and criticized for it. The criticism this time is very fair as they just sold a game away and are now ranked at the 13th spot in the western conference with a 7-12 record. The Lakers were expected to win the game against the Indiana Pacers until the fourth quarter. As after that, the Pacers and, especially, Andrew Nembhard took over the game.
Recently, the Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Indiana Pacers at Crypto.com Arena. And, now the Hollywood-based team has added another embarrassing memory at their home this season. As they were up by 17 points with around 10 minutes left and ended up losing the game at 115-116. As Andrew Nembhard hit a game-winning but heart-breaking buzzer-beater three-pointer against the Lakers while LeBron James slept on the defensive end.
Andrew Nembhard and the Pacers really ran a legendary comeback of 17 big points in the final quarter. When all the superstars from the Lakers’ side just disappeared on both ends of the game. Besides Andrew Nembhard’s game-winning three-pointer it was the efforts of Tyrese Haliburton who ran the offensive end by dropping 24 points, 14 assists and 7 rebounds. Even rook Bennedict Mathurin proved himself and contributed with 23 points, 1 assist and 8 rebounds.
Also, Andrew Nembhard didn’t just drill a clutch three-pointer but also supported his guys throughout the 29 minutes he suited up. As he had 12 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 2 blocks. From the Lakers’ end, Russell Westbrook boosted his team with 24 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Anthony Davis ran the offensive end by dropping 25 points, 6 assists and 13 rebounds.
LeBron James had another poor shooting night and was limited to only 21 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists. The numbers may look good but none of them matters as they gifted the game away to the Pacers even while leading with 17 points. And, now the Lakers get fairly trolled for their disappointing actions.
Fans react to another embarrassing loss of LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers
The video clip of Andrew Nembhard’s game-winning buzzer-beater three-pointer is all over the internet. And, let’s not forget that the young Pacer drilled that shot on LeBron James’ head after Tyrese Haliburton dished the ball to him in the final seconds of regulation. There are thousands of reactions to offer for the game, as the Lakers who were supposed to win in fashion ended up on the losing end as they sold the lead away. Find some of the many reactions posted by fans on social media platforms here below:
The Los Angeles Lakers though still have a fair chance to turn their season around. As finally, they look healthy and improved. As Anthony Davis has finally stepped up and Russell Westbrook is balling out with the second unit. So LeBron James ain’t helpless this season and now they just have to improve their game on personal aspects, especially shooting skills. Also, the team needs to work on their chemistry. They can either do all of that and be a winning team or the management will have to make some major changes in the roster for the franchise to be good again.
