Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors asks the crowd to get fired up against the Detroit Pistons at Chase Center in San Francisco.

On February 5 at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco, the Warriors hosted their 8th annual Warriors Community Foundation Poker Tournament. Every dollar generated from the tournament went to non-profits that focuses on supporting education and youth development in the Bay Area.

The tournament raised $2.5 million that will go to the charities. Some prizes of the auction included a Kelley James guitar signed by Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, and baked cookies by Ayesha Curry.

According to Yahoo’s Chris Haynes, the marquee item that was auctioned off was a dinner at Miller & Lux, Warriors courtside seats with owners Joe and Nicole Lacob were also among the auctions, and a special occasion with Thompson.

After a flurry of buckets from Jordan Poole in the first half against the Los Angeles Lakers, it looked like the Warriors were on the way to snapping their ugly three-game losing streak. However, no lead is safe with LeBron James looming.

As he heated up, James fueled a Lakers’ 14-point comeback in the second half against the Warriors. In the fourth quarter, James drilled three consecutive deep 3-pointers to set up the Lakers’ lead after a late run against the Warriors.

With each team trading clutch buckets down the final stretch, James found Carmelo Anthony in the corner for a dagger 3-pointer with just over 30 seconds remaining.

While Steph Curry tallied 30 points on his own, the eight-time All-Star guard got help off the bench with Poole and rookie Jonathan Kumunga combining for 41 points in the second unit. Yet, it wasn’t enough to answer James.
