The Bobcats had to mount a pretty solid comeback to get a shot at beating Atlanta after a rough first three quarters, which reached a sad apex as the Hawks went on a great run to finish the third quarter.

But showing terrific discipline and resilience late, Charlotte held Atlanta to four points over 7 minutes as they mounted their comeback, eventually taking the lead, then losing it, then tying it with under a minute to go.

After Lou Williams hit a midrange jump shot with a couple seconds to go, the Bobcats had possession to get the last shot to win the game.

Running a terrific inbounds play designed for Chris Douglas-Roberts, they brought Kemba towards the corner and Al Jefferson set a second screen in the middle of the floor as Douglas-Roberts ran to the top of the key. And the teardrop floater that followed as he drove towards the hoop would give the Bobcats the win.
