James managed to play for ten minutes, then Solomon Hill jumped into him while fighting for the ball, and James fell to the ground with a painful grimace. “It was a dangerous game from Hill. The referees should have judged it more severely than just whistling a foul,” said James’ teammate Montrezl Harrell.
After a while, James got up and tried to get back in the game for a few more seconds. He even hit a three, extending his competition record of 1,036 matches with at least ten points. But then he took the time out and went to the locker room. He threw away his chair angrily along the way. “Nothing annoys me more than when I can’t be on the field for my teammates. I’m devastated by it. But my journey begins to come back quickly, as if I wasn’t missing,” James said on social media.

The 36-year-old star was last missing a long time two years ago, when James missed 17 games due to groin. “It must have hurt him a lot because I haven’t seen him scream like that yet,” Kyle Kuzma said.
The mood in the Lakers team went down, which was reflected in the performance especially in the third quarter, when they missed the first 11 shots and Atlanta won the decisive blockbuster. She thus scored her eighth victory in a row under the new coach Nate McMillan. John Collins contributed 27 points and 16 rebounds.
Atlanta finished fourth in the Eastern Conference, followed by the Milwaukee Bucks, who beat San Antonio 120: 113. Janis Adetokunbo dragged the team behind the sixth win in a row by 26 points and his maximum in the season with 15 assists.

“There’s no point in dealing with someone missing us. I always take it as a personal matter when people think we can’t win without our stars. But I know how good a team we are. We have our culture and a system that works when it’s “We keep and trust him. We’re a damn good team,” Harris said.
