Anthony Davis finishes game-winning alley-oop to beat Charlotte

2 Comments

If Anthony Davis is the roll man, you may want to have somebody stick with him. Especially if the game is on the game is on the line.

The Charlotte Hornets had done a decent job of that all night, often leaving Ryan Anderson open for threes, which is why he had 32 points on the night. But on the game-winner, both Jrue Holiday and Cody Zeller went with guard Jrue Holiday. Davis rolled to the rim, the other big was near the top of the key not leaving Anderson, and Jeremy Lin was late and not big enough or physical enough to stop Davis anyway.

Kemba Walker had tied the game at 107-107 knocking down a three with 19.2 seconds left. Both he and Nicolas Batum had 25 for the Hornets, who have won just two of their last 10 games.
