Why LeBron James and the Lakers Can’t Be Trusted In Crunch Time

Of the players who attempted at least 25 clutch Threes, he ranked dead last.

He likewise shot 35.3 percent from the field in routine season crunch time and shooting 1-9 from the field in the clutch throughout playoffs. His plunging percentages have not done much to prevent him from letting them fly.

To put LeBrons clutch shooting numbers into context, he shot 40 percent– not 16 percent– on clutch threes when he was last in the playoffs 2 years earlier. They were still just ranked 20th and 16th in those particular categories in the routine season, a time when LeBron likewise made just 63.3 percent of his clutch complimentary throws.

The Lakers defence allowed them to win a lot of those games anyway, but their late-game angering efficiency certainly requires some work.LA is plainly the chosen to win the title regardless.
