The Lakers lost against the Clippers on Monday.

LeBron James got a literal push from Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kyle Kuzma to play defense during the team’s recent game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

A video of Kuzma shoving James in the back to get him to stop a three-point attempt by forward Danilo Gallinari has been making the rounds on the internet.

The push occurred before Kuzma left the game with an ankle injury. The Lakers ended up losing to the Clippers 113-105; their playoff chances have now come into question considering they’re now at 30 wins and 34 losses.

As Bleacher Report notes, James has been criticized on social media for his defense. Last week he addressed the concern while speaking with Yahoo! Sports.

“I mean, every team has the right if they want to single me out defensively,” he said. “Come on with it. Hey, listen, come on with it. Every team has the right to be like, ‘Oh, ‘Bron’s over there.’ Hey, just come on with it. … We’ll see what happens.”
