The Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies renewed their feud in Game 4 of their increasingly contentious first-round playoff series,

in which bodies flew across the field at breakneck speed, fighting for possession as if it were their last game of the 2022-23 season could.

The usual 48 minutes wasn't enough to decide what would become the decisive game as  LeBron James sent

the game into overtime after scoring with 0.8 seconds remaining after the Grizzlies' Desmond Bane his team took the lead through the lay-up with 6.7 seconds remaining.

James then sealed the deal in overtime with a solid layup, whooping, and flexibility, leading

the Lakers to a hard-earned 117-111 win and a 3-1  lead in the series, with the last of his  22 points leading the team.

His basket sent a sell-out crowd of 18,997 into a frenzy by 29.4 seconds. James hit 20 rebounds for the first time in his career,

becoming the first Laker to have 20 points and 20 rebounds in a playoff game since Shaquille O'Neal on June 13, 2004.

The  NBA  added seven assists and two blocked shots while he committed just one turnover in his record 270th playoff game.

James was 8 of 18 in the game but just 1 of 7 from 3-point range, in 45 minutes of frantic activity that pushed the Grizzlies to the brink.

Game 5 takes place on Wednesday at the FedEx Forum in Memphis. Game 6 will take place on Friday night at the Arena if desired.
