NBA Twitter reacts to the Lakers’ double overtime loss to the Mavericks

The Los Angeles Lakers were hoping to bounce back on Thursday from a 122-109 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Monday that ended their five-game winning streak.

Instead, they fell in double overtime to Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks in double overtime, 119-115, in a grind-it-out affair that seemed like an uphill battle for them all night long.

LeBron James shot 9-of-28, and as a team LA was miserable offensively, shooting 39.3 percent overall and 24.4 percent from 3-point range.

Some Lakers fans blamed the referees, as they felt there were some non-calls that went against the Purple and Gold. Among them was an alleged no-call when Troy Brown Jr. missed what would have been the game-winning tree at the end of regulation while appearing to get hacked.

Fans across Twitter reacted to the Lakers’ gut-wrenching loss in several ways.
