What Had Happened Was: 12/21/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers put on quite a show Tuesday night. Milwaukee scored the final seven points of regulation to force overtime, third-year forward Jabari Parker missed a pair of free throws after a layup rimmed out and LeBron James hit a 3-point dagger with 24 seconds remaining in overtime to seal the game.
James also moved into eighth place on the NBA career scoring list — past Moses Malone (27,409 points) — with his first basket of the night. He now has 27,442 career points after his 34-point outing, with Shaquille O’Neal (28,956) next on his radar.
But in the midst of all that excitement, James and teammate Kyrie Irving also got put on the holiday poster card by Bucks rookie Malcolm Brogdon.
