Lakers’ LeBron James mentions Sixers-Knicks postgame

Shortly after the Philadelphia 76ers dramatically dropped their Game 2 matchup against the New York Knicks, the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets kicked off their Game 2 battle at the home of the defending NBA champions.

Similar to the Sixers, the visiting Lakers fell short against Denver in a close game that ended in a 101-99 victory for the home team, which took a 2-0 series lead.

After the game, Lakers star LeBron James answered questions about his team’s loss. The NBA superstar absolutely didn’t shy away from taking responsibility for his team’s shortcomings on the night, but LeBron felt the need to call out the NBA replay center for missing a foul on his teammate at a critical moment .

While LeBron lamented the situation, he brought up the Sixers-Knicks matchup as another example of what he’s talking about.

“I don’t understand what’s going on in the replay center, to be honest,” James said. “[D’Angelo Russell] clearly gets hit in the face on a drive. … It doesn’t make sense to me. He doesn’t make sense to me. It annoys me. Then I saw what happened with the Sixers-Knick game too. What are… what are we doing?”

LeBron then dropped the microphone and walked away in frustration.
