NBA James – Curry Match up ‘Comedy'… Suddenly the Timepiece Breaks Down


Golden State wins away, 128-121… Lakers James 40 point battle

A skit occurred in the match between the top stars in the National Basketball Association (NBA), where the timing device suddenly broke down and the proceedings were disrupted.

The Golden State Warriors defeated the LA Lakers 128-121 in the 2023-2024 NBA regular league away game held at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles (LA), California, USA on the 17th (Korean time).

About two minutes before the end of the game, when Golden State had a 124-117 lead, Lakers star LeBron James threw a difficult 3-pointer from the corner in front of Stephen Curry, splitting the rim and sending the home fans into a frenzy.

However, as a result of the video review, it was determined that James had slightly stepped on the sideline, and James' 3 points were cancelled. 파워볼

Just when James, who had swallowed his disappointment, regained his composure and was about to attack, the referee suddenly blew his whistle.

This is because it was confirmed that the timer measuring the attack time limit stopped at 24 seconds.

James, who seemed to have lost the momentum due to the referee's successive intervention, showed deep regret by slamming the ball on the floor of the court.

After the Lakers' remaining time was adjusted to 18 seconds, the referees urgently blew the whistle again when James received the inbounds pass and attempted to launch an attack.

This time too, the attack time did not drop from 18 seconds.

After a few minutes of adjustments, James received the ball again and crossed the Golden State court.

This time, the number displayed on the timepiece did not go down from the initial setting of 16 seconds.

While the home fans raised their arms and expressed their dissatisfaction, James was caught on camera laughing as if he was dumbfounded.

When this problem was not resolved, the NBA Secretariat in charge of the game ended up setting the number on the timers installed on both sides of the court to 24 seconds and proceeded with the game as is.

It took about 20 minutes from the moment the problem was first identified.

Of these, the actual playing time was less than 20 seconds.

The rest was used to check for errors in the time clock and for the referees to watch the video.

While Anthony Davis, the core of the Lakers' defense, was unable to play from the second quarter due to an eye injury, ace James exploded with 40 points, 9 assists, and 8 rebounds.

However, the Lakers' pursuit slowed down in a skit where the clock stopped at the last minute, and Golden State confirmed the victory when Jonathan Kuminga, who received a pass from Draymond Green one minute before the end of the game, was dunked.

In Golden State, main gun Curry performed best, posting 31 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Clay Thompson and Kuminga also added 26 and 23 points, respectively, and Green also played well, posting 12 rebounds and 13 assists.

After the game, Curry told local media, “I've never experienced a situation like this in my career,” and added, “I think I usually had a backup timer ready.”

With this win, Golden State, with 35 wins and 31 losses, rose to 9th place, and the Lakers, with 36 wins and 32 losses, fell to 10th place.
