NBA Twitter reacts to LeBron James handing Warriors another loss with 56 point performance

After a flurry of buckets from Jordan Poole in the first half against the Los Angeles Lakers, it looked like the Warriors were on the way to snapping their ugly three-game losing streak. However, no lead is safe with LeBron James looming.

As he heated up, James fueled a Lakers’ 14-point comeback in the second half against the Warriors. In the fourth quarter, James drilled three consecutive deep 3-pointers to set up the Lakers’ lead after a late run against the Warriors.

With each team trading clutch buckets down the final stretch, James found Carmelo Anthony in the corner for a dagger 3-pointer with just over 30 seconds remaining.

While Steph Curry tallied 30 points on his own, the eight-time All-Star guard got help off the bench with Poole and rookie Jonathan Kumunga combining for 41 points in the second unit. Yet, it wasn’t enough to answer James.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been very quiet at the NBA trade deadline. As you can imagine, LeBron James has some thoughts on the team’s inaction.

Speaking to the media this week, LeBron admitted that he can see the trade deadline starting to affect the team. He said that it’s like there’s a “fog” in the air for them.

“Obviously, this is something that’s weighing on this group that we’re all trying to get through. Almost feels like it’s a fog, just a fog in the air,” LeBron said.

There have been rumors that the Lakers could be eyeing reinforcements at the deadline. But nothing has materialized as of yet.

The Los Angeles Lakers have shown a willingness to move on from players. In January they traded Rajon Rondo to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Many pointed to Russell Westbrook’s struggles as a big reason why the Lakers lost to the KD and Kyrie-less Nets on Christmas Day. However, LeBron James came to the defense of the 14-year vet. Telling reporters that Westbrook’s effort was a big reason why LA was able to climb out of a 20-point hole and be in position to steal a home W.

“He gave us extra possessions, he gave us a lot of looks around the basket, which I know that he can’t stand [failing to convert] as well,” James said.

“But as far as the effort piece, if a guy plays hard, if a guy leaves it all out on the floor, I got no problem with that,” he continued. “It’s a make-or-miss league.”

LeBron also described Westbrook’s decision-making as “spectacular” after the nine-time All-Star finished with double-digit assists.
