Breaking news: Warriors head coach just announced his departure in…

In addition to earning bragging rights over Steph Curry, LeBron James led the Los Angeles Lakers to an exciting 145-144 overtime victory over the Golden State Warriors.

At 39 years old, James is the oldest player in the NBA. He added 36 points, a career-high 20 rebounds, and 12 assists to his total.

With a second left on the clock, James made both of his free shots to seal the game.

On the losing side, Curry recorded a game-high 46 points and seven assists.

The four-time MVP James said he would have pleasant memories of his matchup with Curry once his career ended.

“Steph came to me after the game and said ‘how does it keep getting better?'” Said James.

“After you finish playing, you will genuinely absorb everything about it.

“When you are able to watch with your grandkids and say that I played against one of the best ever to play this game.”

With 5.2 seconds remaining, Curry made a fantastic 28-foot three-point jumper to give the Warriors a one-point lead.

With seven seconds left, Klay Thompson made a 25-foot three-pointer to send the game into double overtime. James then had the final say.

Denver Nuggets, the reigning NBA champions, defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, who were missing their star center Joel Embiid, 111-105.

After the 76ers defeated the San Antonio Spurs 133-123 last week, Embiid became one of just 10 players in NBA history to score 70 or more points in a game.

Embiid, the reigning MVP, warmed up before the game but was later taken out by the team’s medical staff due to knee soreness.

Embiid missed his eleventh game of the season. In order to be eligible for the league’s accolades, including MVP, he can only afford to miss six more games.

The Nuggets’ two-time MVP Nikola Jokic led the team in scoring with 26 points and 16 rebounds, while Jamal Murray chipped in with 23 points.
