SAN FRANCISCO -- It took a statistical achievement that LeBron James had never reached before in 1,463 career regular-season games, an extra 10 minutes of game time and two swished free throws with 1.2 seconds remaining before the Los Angeles Lakers star could claim victory over his longtime nemesis, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers won 145-144 in double-overtime on Saturday with James putting up 36 points, a career-best 20 rebounds and 12 assists, edging Curry's game-high 46 points -- including 15 in the OT periods -- in an instant classic between the two surefire Hall of Famers.
