The Lakers defeated the Pistons on Saturday night, which usually wouldn’t be notable, but after losing to the Pistons in Detroit, they got to do double overtime in a comeback game in LA because the Lakers can’t shake their instincts in this regular season. To walk through the games to sleep.
It is not an issue that anyone expects to go to the playoffs, as reigning Champs have the benefit of the doubt that they will be able to come in at the switch play playoff time, but this means that they will be late for the teams Some find themselves in tight games perhaps they should not be pushed to the brink. The good news is that for the most part, they are coming out on top in these battles as they are 18-6 on the season and heading to one of the top seeds in the West.
The bad news is, they are going to call LeBron James for heroism as much as I think he would like this regular season, with a quick return from winning a title at Bubble Back in October. On Saturday, it was James, who dived twice in double overtime with a stepback three to go four late and abruptly end the one-hour game.

Later, he was asked about that shot and noted that his old heart can’t handle these two OT games like they used to and he just needed to finish it.

It’s a joke, but at the same time, somewhere, there is a hint of the truth that James would probably like it if the Lakers were getting a much easier win this season than they ever had. Part of the problem is how they are going through the early stages of the games – including James at times – and allow teams to move around, but LeBron has been carrying the load so far and this has led him to MVP Strongly carried forward in the race. Nonetheless, this is a team that has been in single-digit games seven times in their last 10 matches, winning six of them, but it is still a lot more stress that the defending Champs are on a nightly basis. Would like to
In any case, it helps Lebron in those situations, but perhaps the Lakers can ease the strain on his old heart by giving him some easy wins in the near future.
