LeBron watched the Clippers and Timberwolves after the Lakers game
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James was tuned in for the LA Clippers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game after the Lakers lost to the Memphis Grizzlies earlier today. James was sidelined for that contest with a foot injury, but was in attendance on the bench.
Tuning in for the second half of TNT’s double header between the Clippers and Timberwolves, James complimented Minnesota’s big man Naz Reid for his solid performance:
Reid always seems to have solid showings against the Clippers, and while he is undoubtedly talented, he often goes up against smaller groups that have no answer for him. The Clippers have played most of this season without a backup center, and their recent acquisition of Mason Plumlee does not add much rim deterrence either.
While the Clippers simply have no answer for Reid in the second unit, they are not the only team he has dominated this season. Reid is simply an incredible backup center, who has been solid for the Timberwolves all season. Heavily sought after at the trade deadline, Reid ultimately stayed in Minnesota for their playoff push.
With a lot of respect for Naz Reid and his game, LeBron James shared some love for the Timberwolves big man. As previously mentioned, James is unfortunately sidelined right now with a foot injury, so he will not be suiting up for the Lakers for at least the next couple weeks.
