Nuggets HC Michael Malone Didn’t Seem Happy LeBron James Shot More Free Throws In Game 4 After The Lakers Complained To The League

Nuggets head coach Michael Malone didn’t seem pleased that LeBron James and Anthony Davis shot more free throws than the entire Nuggets team during game 4 after the Lakers complained to the league over lack of foul calls.

After Game 3 of the series, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said he “went through the proper channels” to let the league know that he felt LeBron wasn’t shooting enough free throws.

“We’re dealing with the fouls through the proper channels with the league,” Frank Vogel told reporters after Wednesday’s practice. “I think he’s gone to the basket very aggressively, and I’ll just leave it at that.”

LeBron and the Lakers immediately shot more free throws in game 4 following Vogel’s complaint to the league.

After the game, Malone joked that he would also have to go “through the proper channels” like Vogel and the Lakers did to get more free throws.

It is worth noting that despite the free throw disparity in game 4, the Lakers and the Nuggets have shot the same amount of free throws cumulatively throughout all games in the series.
