They then continued with an unfortunate 143-120 reverse in Philadelphia on Sunday, losing 2 1/2 games in a playoff in the Western Conference starting Monday. “We had too many failures,” star LeBron James told reporters after Los Angeles allowed the 76ers to shoot 57.7 percent. “Too many flaws, I mean, we scored the ball as well as we can score the ball, especially in the first quarter, but we lost too many points of paint.” James finished a second consecutive decisive double and averaged 22 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 9.8 assists in four games since returning from a groin injury. He will aim for a Hawks team that allows him to get 118.5 points, a largest in the NBA, and lost five straight times at home.
