The Lakers were actually up at halftime and had some solid chances to bring the series to 1-1, but Nikola Jokić and the Nuggets took care of business, using a rowdy Denver crowd to seal the deal for them down the stretch.
Well, the game itself isn’t the only thing that people are talking about, and the Lakers being down 0-2 isn’t the only thing from the contest that people are mocking.
No, no, no … people are also talking about and mocking the fact that LeBron James — who recently made the claim that the Lake Show doesn’t flop — flopped. Doing so in the fourth quarter, James managed to draw a foul on Jokić.

You can see it in LeBron‘s eyes, that man knew exactly what he was doing. He played Jokić, it’s just a shame that Jokić played him the rest of the way to give the Nuggets the victory.
I find it absolutely hilarious how all of this came literally right after LeBron said he and the Lakers don’t flop too. (RELATED: REPORT: Nike Removes Ja Morant Sneakers Off Website)
God, there’s so much comedy to this whole thing.
