Re: The OFFICIAL SPORTS thread

The Los Angeles Lakers title defense is hanging by a thread.

Trailing 3-2 in the series the Lakers head home to STAPLES Center for Game 6 with their back against the wall.

For LeBron James, the situation is an unfamiliar one, with the Los Angeles superstar never losing a first round series over the course of his Hall of Fame career. On top of that, the Game 4 and 5 losses are the first time he has lost back-to-back first round games and he has never trailed in a first round series after Game 5.

By halftime of the latest loss, the deficit was already 30 points, with the game all but over.

"We got our ass kicked. It's that simple," James told reporters. "It's literally win or go home at this point. You shoot all of the bullets you got, and throw the gun, too."

With about five minutes left in the 115-85 defeat that put LA one loss away from first-round elimination, James made his way to the locker room.

Skip Bayless, a Fox Sports personality, took notice and pounced on the Los Angeles Lakers star for leaving his team’s blowout loss to the Phoenix Suns several minutes before the NBA playoff game ended Tuesday.

“Here we go again. The Drama King leaves the bench with 5:40 left in this blowout and walks quickly up the tunnel to the locker room,” Bayless tweeted. “Guess he doesn’t want to sit through the rest of this embarrassment like his teammates have to. Guess he doesn’t want to be associated with this shame.”
