The national audience was not the only ones impressed by the elite range of sharpshooters Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry.
LeBron James, who drafted both players to his team during the All-Star draft last week, tweeted his amazement at how deep the two guards were shooting, and draining, shots.
Lillard, in particular, stole the show with two half-court three-pointers including the game-winning shot.
Steph was even waving goodbye before Dame pulled up. He just knew, as did everyone else watching. The most clutch player in the NBA was going to end it.
After the game, Dame and Steph appreciated the love from the King.
Curry finished the game with 28 points on 8-16 three-point shooting while Lillard set a Trail Blazers record with 32 points on 8-16 three-point shooting as well.
Lillard made three-pointers of 25-feet, 26-feet (four times), 29-feet, 40-feet and 43-feet. Curry made three-pointers of 23-feet (twice), 24-feet, 25-feet (twice), 34-feet (twice) and 43-feet. The Golden State shooter also won the three-point contest for the second time in his career earlier in the evening.
The performance comes a few weeks after LeBron called Lillard the second most disrespected player in the NBA.
It's no wonder the Oakland pairing of Lillard and Curry put on a show. Dame specified he was excited to play with him during his pregame media session.
“I never played with Steph,” Lillard said. “Me and Steph never played together. Actually, we did my first All-Star Game, but I don’t remember us being in the game together, and it was both of our first All-Star Games...
It most certainly was, Damian.
