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.
