While there was a nine-game slate of NBA games on Saturday night, most of the eyes of the basketball universe were on the Men’s Final Four in Indianapolis. specifically an overtime thriller between Gonzaga and UCLA.

In a game that featured 19 lead changes and 15 ties, it was won by a near halfcourt 3-pointer by Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs. Suggs’ 3-pointer came after UCLA’s Johnny Juzang tied the game at 90 with less than four seconds on the clock. LeBron James was one of many who joined the party, live-tweeting during the game and saying it was one of the best games he’s seen in a long time.

James also said that he saw the game-winner coming from Suggs, as the Bruins did not pick up the dribble until after Suggs crossed halfcourt.

James also tweeted his thoughts about a key play at the end of regulation in which Gonzaga’s Drew Timme made a clutch defensive play to force an offensive foul on UCLA. But not without some commentary about what he thinks needs changing at the younger levels of the game.

Given how active he was tonight on Twitter, one can imagine that James will be back online for the National Championship Game as the Zags look to complete an undefeated season against the 27-2 Baylor Bears.
