The Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers, who have been the subject of several trade speculations in recent months

were engaged in a close contest on Monday night.

With a nine-point lead over a club that was playing the second night of a back-to-back, LeBron James and the Lakers seemed poised to win their fifth game in a row.

Even in the reward period, the Lakers were in the lead by as many as 17 points.

Andrew Nembhard, a rookie with the Pacers, had different plans.

With time running down and the Lakers leading 115-113, Nembhard, the 31st selection in the 2022 NBA Draft

struck the dagger into the Lakers' hearts by sinking a triple over LeBron James' closeout to lead the Pacers to a comeback victory.

An unnoticed youngster named Andrew Nembhard made a fantastic shot, and as expected, fans exploded on Twitter.
