CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — In his final game with the Clippers, Tobias Harris scored 34 points, including a running jumper in the lane with 4.3 seconds remaining, and the Los Angeles Clippers rallied from 20 points down to beat the Charlotte Hornets 117-115 on Tuesday night.
Charlotte had a chance to tie or take the lead on its last possession, but Marvin Williams‘ 3-point attempt was short at the buzzer.
After Harris scored 34, the Clippers agreed to trade Harris to Philadelphia in a blockbuster trade that sets the Sixers up as contenders in the East and sets Los Angeles up for big moves this summer.
Kemba Walker scored 32 points and Jeremy Lamb added 22 for the Hornets. Marvin Williams finished with 13 points and Malik Monk had 12. It was the second time this season Charlotte lost a game after leading by 20.
Beverly’s loose-ball foul with 21.1 seconds left put Marvin Williams on the line for Charlotte. Williams hit both to tie it at 115.
The Clippers shot 75 percent (18 for 24) on 3-pointers.
