James had a clear opportunity to make the three, and if he had, Denver would not have had a chance to win the game. James squandered that one last, clear-cut opportunity despite making several three-pointers in the fourth quarter to put the Lakers in a winning position.

Following the game, James was questioned about it and stated, “I had a wide open look and it rimmed out.” It bordered both inside and outside.

James, who has been an excellent three-point shooter this season, shot a very respectable 3/6 in the second half of the game. James had a chance to put his team up on that look, but he missed the biggest of the game, which also happened to be wide open. It was a sad loss at the buzzer for the Lakers.

The Lakers must now win one game at home in order to secure a return trip to Denver for Game 5 before they can leave for Los Angeles. The Lakers, who have had trouble facing Denver, need to figure out how to play a whole game if they want to avoid another sweep.
