LeBron James Blames Team Schedule After Loss To The Los Angeles Clippers: “Got The Best Of Us Tonight”
The Los Angeles Lakers had won four straight games heading into Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Lakers tried to keep it alive, but their hometown rivals showed no mercy, coming out strong with a 125-118 victory.
The Lakers were in for the second leg of a back-to-back after playing an overtime game against the Utah Jazz. LeBron James and Anthony Davis would normally sit this one out, but they had to play in order to boost the team’s chances of securing a playoff spot.
LeBron may have had a 33-8-7 stat line against the Clippers, but playing an important game of a back-to-back after an overtime game was certainly tough for him and the rest of his crew. So after their loss to the Clippers, the 38-year old Lakers superstar pointed his finger at his team’s rough schedule.
“It’s tough. It’s one of the toughest games we’ve had this year. This was one of those scheduling conflicts in the season. And it definitely got the best of us tonight.”
