The Los Angeles Lakers’ roller coaster of a season came to an end with one epic comeback against the Denver Nuggets as they rallied from 17 down to win in overtime.
After the game, the headlines should’ve been on Malik Monk’s career-high 41 points and Austin Reaves leading the comeback, but Lakers veteran Wayne Ellington stole the shine when he took to Twitter to threaten Nuggets guard Facundo Campazzo after his dirty hit that led to a Flagrant 2 foul call and ejection:
After being hit by Campazzo, Ellington’s head hit a teammate’s leg on the way down to the ground.
Here’s how fans responded to the threat:
Austin Reaves dropped a historic 31-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist triple-double while Ellington poured in 18 points off the bench.
