The Lakers had a chance Sunday to put a true hammer lock on the NBA Finals in Game 3, and whiffed. As it was in Game 2, L.A. was sloppy early, turning the ball over 10 times in the first quarter. But unlike Game 2, the Lakers couldn't find any consistent rhythm.
They still had opportunities to win, even leading during the fourth quarter, but when it came time to execute, the Lakers were outclassed. Particularly by Butler, who had a genuinely historic game, matched in history only by LeBron and Jerry West.
So how worried should the Lakers be? (They're not, fwiw.) How worried should Lakers fans be? (Not very, fwiw.) Andy and Brian break it all down, before wrapping with a peek at the "No Ring for Kuz" petition.
Game 4 is Tuesday!
