VIDEO: Lakers’ LeBron James chews out Lakers teammates at end of 1st half vs. Mavs
The Los Angeles Lakers were looking to extend their winning streak to 11 against the Dallas Mavericks, and during the early parts of the game, it seemed like they were on their way to another easy victory — leading by as many as 10 twice during the first half.
However, the Mavs came roaring back and only trailed by three after the first 24 minutes of action.
The Lakers are the best defensive team in the league, but they struggled to prevent the Mavs from scoring. Dallas had a couple of 8-0 runs in the first half to allow them to get back in the game.
Nonetheless, it seems that LeBron’s message didn’t come across the rest of the Purple and Gold, as they ended up trailing the Mavs 94-69 at the end of three quarters. Dallas had a 17-0 run during that period.
In the end, Dallas won 114-110.
