In addition, James struggled with a shot that rebounded off the backboard too forcefully in the closing stages of the game. To compound matters, he faced a defensive setback as Bruce Brown managed to strip him of the ball in the dying seconds.

It was an uncharacteristically difficult performance for LeBron James, highlighting the tough circumstances he faced during the game, contributing to the Lakers’ loss.

James, of course, has had several game-winners and buzzer-beaters in his career in the playoffs. He just couldn’t get it done in the fourth quarter in Game 2 against the Denver Nuggets.

“King James,” who is usually deadly within point-blank range missed a layup when the score was 103-99 in favor of Denver. James’ miss led to two free throws for Jamal Murray who extended the Nuggets’ lead to 105-99.

With the Nuggets leading 108-103, the Lakers desperately pushed the ball up court with 12.6 seconds left in the game. James, however, lost the ball to Brown, which sealed the game for Denver and a 2-0 lead in the conference finals.
