LeBron James wished the Lakers could have a do over.
History would’ve been made. Champagne would’ve been flying. It would’ve been their golden ticket out of the NBA bubble after an arduous 100-plus day stay.
But the final moments of Game 5 didn’t go as planned in the Lakers’ 111-108 loss to the Miami Heat.
With the Lakers down 109-108 and 16.8 seconds left, James penetrated to the basket as all five Heat players collapsed around him. He then passed the ball to a wide open Danny Green.
Green took one dribble before shooting a three-pointer that clanked off of the front of the rim. Marieff Morris rebounded the ball, but committed a costly turnover, throwing a wild pass attempt to Anthony Davis under the basket that missed him by at least a few feet.
James wouldn’t have done anything differently. He just knows that could’ve gone a different way.
