Twitter Roasts Kentavious Caldwell-Pope After Missing Game-Winner Against Portland


Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has had a pretty rough week to say the least.

First, KCP was sentenced to 25 days in prison after violating his probation due to refusing to take mandatory alcohol and drug screenings. His imprisonment -- even though he is allowed to leave jail for work reasons -- has forced Pope to stay within California borders, rendering him unable to travel with the Lakers for away games out of Cali.

And now, after the Lakers loss to Portland, KCP's week just gets worse.

With Los Angeles down 94-92 with 21.4 seconds to go, Caldwell-Pope took it upon himself to take the potential game-winning three after a pass from Kyle Kuzma into the corner. Due to being smothered, Pope missed the shot badly.

No worries though, after an intentional foul and a miss at the line, the Lakers still had a chance to tie the game with a three. Kentavious proceeded to call his number again, bricking the shot off the back iron.

After such a terrible clutch-time performance from KCP, you can only imagine how Twitter reacted.

Yeah, it was pretty bad.

Caldwell-Pope finished the game shooting 5-12 from the field and 1-5 from three for a total of 11 points, and was outscored by both Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson who played 10 fewer minutes than KCP.
