Draymond, Iguodala react to crazy Suns-Clippers ending

Warriors

Professional athletes, they're just like us -- live-tweeting sporting events. 

It was impossible not to have some sort of reaction after a wild ending to Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers. 

Warriors star Draymond Green was watching and live-tweeted the final seconds of a fourth-quarter that ended in a game-winning lob to Suns' center Deandre Ayton. 

Before the game-winning score, the Clippers took the lead on Paul George's go-ahead basket with 22 seconds remaining, just after Suns' Devin Booker hit a go-ahead shot with 27 seconds remaining. 

Following George's go-ahead basket, the Clippers forward went to the line to shoot two free throws, missing both of them. 

In the final seconds of the game, you would think Booker -- the Suns best scoring threat -- would be the one attempting to hit the game-winner. Draymond would certainly agree with you, although the Suns pulled it off without a shot from their young star. 

One of the Suns veteran leaders, Chris Paul, was not active for Tuesday's game. Unable to play due to a positive COVID-19 test, Paul has missed both games of the series.

Paul's teams have lost 11 straight games refereed by Scott Foster, and Tuesday night was his team's first win against the veteran ref in quite some time.

Former Warrior Andre Iguodala took notice when Portland Trail Blazer CJ McCollum joked about the history between the two. 

It was a wild night for basketball, and when it's a wild night for basketball, it's just as wild online.
