If you looked on social media Monday before the Warriors' 115-113 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, it felt like the "rivalry" between Steph Curry and LeBron James was more amped up than ever.
These two now are in their 12th season of being in the NBA at the same time together. They now have played 14 regular-season games against each other, and with Golden State's win, they're tied with seven wins apiece. But Curry still holds the lead by a wide margin when it matters most.
Curry got the better of James in the box score on Monday night, too. The Warriors' star point guard didn't have his best shooting night by any means (8-for-22, 3-for-12 from 3), but he finished the night with 26 points and seven assists. He was minus-3 for the night in plus-minus.
James scored 19 points, had five rebounds and five assists, and was minus-9. Curry's clutch 3-pointer over Lakers star Anthony Davis helped seal the Warriors' 19-point comeback win. James bricked his game-winning 3-point attempt.
Over his 18-year career, James has four titles -- two with the Miami Heat, one with the Cleveland Cavaliers and one with the Lakers. His lone ring with the Cavs came against Curry and the Warriors. Curry has three rings in his 12-year career, and all came against James' Cavs teams.
The rivalry continues when the Warriors face the Lakers next on Feb. 28 at Staples Center.
