Wolves 96, Hornets 99

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
The game had just been tied by Mike James' nerve-busting three-pointer from the top of the key that appeared would send a game that looked like it had gotten away into overtime.

With 5.6 seconds left, the Hornets inbounded the ball. Stojakovic screened down and popped back out off of Tyson Chandler. He took the ball, turned and shot while falling away from 25 feet.

Swish. Game.

Box Score

"We've got to make plays at the end," James said. "Peja made a tough shot to win the game, put the nail in the coffin. But it shouldn't have come down to that. We had a lead and let it get away from us."
