Jeremy Lamb saved the Charlotte Hornets season with a big time shot.
The Hornets were down 114-112 with 3.1 seconds left on the clock. The two guard managed to pull off a halfcourt shot to give the Hornets the win over the Raptors.
“I just want to thank Jesus Christ because that’s the only way that shot went in,” he said moments later. “We played a great overall game. I think everybody contributed, everybody played well. I’m just thankful that last shot went in.”
“That’s just how we drew it up,” said a smiling Hornets Head Coach James Borrego after the game. “They’re a great defense – so long. [That shot] was just a contested bomb and he got it up there. He gave it a run and that thing went in.”
The Raptors were at a lose for words with the shot.
The Hornets are still two games behind the Miami Heat for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference seeding.
