The Lakers got off to a terrible start as the Spurs knocked down 12 of their first 13 field goals en route to taking an 18-point lead in the first quarter. But L.A. steadily chipped away and eventually made a game of it.

They closed the fourth quarter on an 8-0 run to force overtime, and were in control until letting it slip away over the final minutes. The Spurs finished the game on a 7-0 spurt to pull out a 143-142 victory.

While LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart were among those to provide highlights during the game, so too did a fan between a quarter break.

With an opportunity to win $30,000, Ali Sabbouri of Anaheim, Calif., sunk a half-court shot to win the Aria Big Shot Jackpot.

The 26-year-old became the seventh winner (excluding Vlade Divac) of the MGM Big Shot Jackpot, which began during the 2006-07 NBA season.

Sabbouri is the first MGM Big Shot Jackpot winner of this season, and first since Suni Strong won $100,000 on Jan. 21, 2018.
