The Warriors see themselves cruising against James and the Lakers. Stephen Curry is also on point as he has already added 30 points to the mix. However, one instance surprised everyone in the arena. Curry got to the free throw line in the second quarter. Like always, everyone expected two makes, but Curry missed his first three throw.

Seeing this LeBron tried to do everything to get Curry to miss another one. While Curry took his second free throw, James yelled: “Oh give me two, I ain’t ever seen it!” Unsurprisingly, that did not work out as Curry made the second free throw with ease. However, even Curry couldn’t believe that he missed a free throw as he laughed it out with Draymond Green.
