The haters were out on Sunday.

Cleveland star LeBron James missed a pair of free throws with 4.2 seconds left in overtime, helping the Rockets beat the Cavaliers 105-103 in Houston.

And there were some people reveling in his misfortune.

James finished just three for 11 at the free-throw line. To be fair, Houston’s James Harden did kick James in the Charlie Browns earlier in the game.
