LeBron James expressed frustration after the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets on a buzzer-beater in Game 2 of their playoff series. The Nuggets won 101-99, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.

The Lakers had a strong start and led by 20 points, but the Nuggets made a comeback. Jamal Murray's last-second shot sealed the win for Denver.

James was particularly upset about a foul call that was overturned after a replay review. The NBA's replay center in New Jersey changed a foul call against Michael Porter Jr., saying he had only made slight contact with D'Angelo Russell.

“I don’t understand what’s going on in the replay center,” James said. “D-Lo clearly gets hit in the face on the drive. What the (expletive) do we have a replay center ... it doesn’t make sense. It makes no sense. It bothers me.”

Despite scoring 26 points and making 12 assists, James missed a crucial 3-pointer in the final seconds of the game. Porter grabbed the rebound, leading to Murray's game-winning shot.

After the game, James also commented on the Lakers' missed opportunities and the challenges they face heading into Game 3 in Los Angeles.

The Lakers will need to regroup quickly to avoid falling into a deeper hole in the series.
