NBA Twitter Reacts After LeBron James And The Lakers Beat Golden State In Epic Play-In Game

Could we have dreamed of a better matchup for the NBA's first-ever play-in tournament?

LeBron James and Steph Curry aren't just some of the greatest players in basketball, they're also fierce competitors with a long history of playoff battles.

So when they were set to face off in Wednesday's play-in tournament, everybody knew it was going to be must-watch tv.

After a hard-fought game, it was the Lakers who came out on top, beating the Dubs to secure the 7th seed and lock in a first-round matchup against Phoenix.

In the end, it was a shot by LeBron James that sealed the victory.

James finished with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists on the night, while Davis scored 25 points and 12 rebounds in 42 minutes.

Curry also had an excellent night, scoring 37 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists.

It was the expected outcome, as the defending Champs seem to have more to work with. Still, the reaction from fans on Twitter was interesting to watch, and it seems there is a growing belief that the Lakers might be on the verge of another deep playoff run.

With Anthony Davis and LeBron James clearly not yet at 100%, these next few days of rest will be key in helping them prepare for the long postseason stretch.

As for the Warriors, they still have a chance to make the playoffs. Despite their loss, they can make the 8th seed with a victory against San Antonio on Thursday.

Needless to say, there's a lot to look forward to over the next few weeks and months.
