“Game Of The Year!” – NBA World Reacts To Insane Lakers Vs Warriors Double OT Game


“How does it keep getting better?” 35-year Stephen Curry could be seen asking 39-year LeBron James after what likely was the best game of this season. But even the 21-year old veteran didn’t have an answer for this one: “I don’t know!”

Even the two superstars were in awe of the game they had just played against each other, and their respective performances. The Los Angeles Lakers eventually beat the Golden State Warriors 145-144 after two overtimes. James sealed the win with two clutch free throws, after Curry had drained his ninth three pointer just moments before, with the Warriors taking the momentary lead.



James finished with an insane triple-double of 36 points, career-high 20 rebounds and 12 assists, becoming only the third player in NBA history with such stat line (Wilt Chamberlain (5x) and Elgin Baylor being the other two), Curry on the other hand had 46 points and seven assists and the previously mentioned nine three pointers.


“It’s something I’ll be able to talk about with my grandkids, talk about me being able to compete with one of the greatest players to ever play the game,” James said post-game. “So hopefully I can be cool with my grandkids at that point, for sure.”


While the Warriors suffered another devastating loss, marking their second consecutive heartbreak – they were just defeated 134-133 by Sacramento – the NBA world was absolutely thrilled with the game and the two aging stars’ performances. NBA Twitter reacted accordingly.
