J.R. Smith Calls Lakers-Spurs Game One of Best Regular-Season Games Ever

LeBron James Lakers Spurs

Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith watched the Los Angeles Lakers face off against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night, and loved every moment of it.

The game was a thriller, with the Spurs edging out the Lakers, 143-142, in overtime. LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma, DeMar DeRozan, and LaMarcus Aldridge all had fantastic games.

Though the Spurs had held the lead throughout the first three quarters, the fourth quarter featured a series of lead changes, with James hitting a deep 3-pointer towards the end of regulation to force overtime. Though the Lakers had held a six-point lead at one point in overtime, the Spurs fought back and ultimately won, thanks to a go-ahead basket by guard Patty Mills.

Smith made sure to express how much he loved the game, as he took to Twitter for a series of tweets that expressed his emotions.

Smith also retweeted the following video, released by SLAM, of James’ game-tying three:

It is nice to see James’ teammates still supporting him and maintaining that level of strong camaraderie.
