The decisive moment came when the Hawks’ Dejounte Murray sunk a crucial 14-foot shot with a mere 4.6 seconds remaining in regulation, leveling the score at 123-123.
Despite Curry’s valiant efforts, including eight additional points in overtime, the Warriors could not secure the victory.
In contrast, LeBron James played a pivotal role in leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a 113-105 triumph over the New York Knicks.
James, contributing 24 points, showcased his prowess on the court after speculation arose regarding a potential trade following a cryptic social media post featuring an hourglass on January 31.
The 39-year-old briefly sat out a game against the Boston Celtics due to an ankle injury, fueling trade rumors.
However, James’ agent subsequently clarified to ESPN that the veteran player had no intentions of being traded, stating, “we aren’t asking to be.”
