LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers faced their third consecutive defeat against Nikola Jokic's Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night. After losing both their road games, the Lakers failed to make an impact at their home and lost 119-108 in Game 3, however, San Antonio Spurs forward Jeremy Sochan, who earlier mocked LeBron in Game 2, didn't hold back and shared a cryptic post on social media.
For the second straight game, Jamal Murray registered a game-high score with 37 points followed by Nikola Jokic, who scored 24 points, six rebounds, and eight assists. On the other hand, Anthony Davis scored the most points for the Lakers with 28 points, and 18 rebounds followed by LeBron James, who registered 23 points, 12 assists, and seven rebounds, and Austin Reaves (23 points, seven rebounds, five assists).
In Game 2, Lebron James drew a foul on Nikola Jokic while many called out the all-time leading point scorer in NBA history for flopping. Among those, San Antonio Spurs rookie Jeremy Sochan was also included who took to his Twitter handle and shared his views on the incident. After the Lakers' third straight loss, Sochan took to Twitter and shared a cryptic post, where he mentioned three laughing emojis.

However, the Lakers fans were quick to hit back at Sochan for his cryptic tweet as many considered it was an attack aimed toward LeBron James and the Lakers. While a few fans compared Sochan with Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks, who started a beef with the four-time MVP and James having the last laugh, others asked him about his identity.
Meanwhile, the Lakers are scheduled to host the Nuggets at the Crypto.com Arena on Monday evening in Game 4 of their Western Conference Finals and will look to extend the series with a victory at home.
