LeBron’s Injury In Blowout Game, Kyrie Irving Steps Up In Win Over 76ers, Alabama Suspends 3 Players

BASKETBALL

In a much anticipated Christmas showdown, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers took on the mighty Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Unfortunately the game was a blowout with the Lakers dominating from the beginning. The big scare for the Lakers occurred in the third quarter when LeBron strained his groin and had to leave the game. No word yet on how serious the injury is or if LeBron will miss any playing time, but according to LeBron, “With me with injuries, I am never too concerned about them.” Lakers 127, Warriors 101

In the other hyped Christmas Day game, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics did not disappoint. With nine lead changes and the game tied nine times, everyone played their heart out, but the Celtics Kyrie Irving was the true star of the game. Not only did he make the game tying basket in regulation, but he stepped up in a big way in overtime immediately knocking down two threes and finishing the game with 40 points and 10 rebounds. Celtics 121, 76ers 114.
