David West Knocks Down 17-footer At The Buzzer, Hornets Win

Posted: March 27, 2008 in Hornets

After countless lead changes, the Hornets found themselves in a shootout that had the Cavs down 1 with under 20 seconds to go. LeBron James took the ball in the lane and scooped the ball in the basket with 7.7 seconds left in the game to give the Cavs a 99-98 lead. Then the Hornets called time out. Out of the timeout Jannero Pargo inbounded cleanly to Chris Paul, who took it down the lane, found himself well defended by two Cavaliers, turned around and dished out his 20th assist to David West. West rose to shoot a high arching 17-foot shot over a fast approaching defender. The shot was rinsed!! The Hornets got a thrilling 100-99 win over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers that sent them to 49-21 overall and assure them the top spot in West by percentage points no matter what the L.A. Lakers did against Charlotte.
