Philly Dominance: LeBron and Lakers Suffer Worst NBA Loss
LeBron James has never suffered such a basketball defeat as he did with Los Angeles in Philadelphia. While James has lost by 36 points in an NBA Finals game with the Miami Heat, and by 42 with the Indiana Pacers in 2019, the Sixers’ win on Monday marked the worst loss in James’ career dating to 2003. The Sixers won the game 138-94, with Joel Embiid recording a triple-double by the third quarter. Even though the Lakers have suffered miserable loss milestones, the Sixers opening the game in 3-pointers resulted in a lead that the Lakers couldn’t recover from. Despite James’ effort, the Lakers were unable to make a comeback, leaving the 76ers with a win.
