"I always got a chance at a shot," said James post game. "That's not even a question, but you attract so many eyes on defense, you know, I had a good shot but [Kentavious Caldwell-Pope] had a great shot. And you live with the results."
With the Lakers down 106-104 with around 20 seconds left on the clock, James attacked the paint, creating space for a layup after shifting past Nikola Vucevic. Instead, he passed out to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for an open 3-pointer.
After Caldwell-Pope's missed attempt, Orlando would eventually pull away for the win on the road. With the loss, the Lakers fall to 11-8 on the season. They had won their previous three contests heading into the matchup with the Magic.
