VIDEO: Kemba Walker sends Landry Shamet flying with the nasty crossover
The Boston Celtics and LA Clippers duked it out on TNT on Thursday night, and the Celtics came away victorious in a thrilling double-overtime contest. While Landry Shamet of the Clippers drilled a clutch triple to send the game to its second overtime, Kemba Walker and the Celtics would have the last laugh as the Eastern Conference All-Star shook Shamet with a sweet dribble move, then drilled a saucy stepback three-pointer in that second overtime period:

The Celtics would continue to pour it on from there, with the hometown C’s taking the game by a final margin of 141 to 133 behind 39 points from Jayson Tatum. Walker chipped in 19 points of his own with 9 rebounds and 7 assists.
This titanic tussle gives the Clippers a record of 37-18 heading into the All-Star break (good for the 3 seed in the West), while the Celtics are hot on the heels of the 2-seed Raptors with a 38-16 second record in the East.
