There were 8.8 seconds left on the clock,the game was tied 87-87, OJ Mayo who had a STRONG game with 25 points and 6 rebounds had just hit a dagger 3 pointer to tie the game up. Things were looking up for the Grizzlies and then this happened:
Raymond Felton drives to the basket, misses the shot BUT Gerald Wallace outjumps Zach Randolph to tap it in with 0.5 seconds remaining for the game winner. Good Times in Bobcatsland.
There were several Bobcats that contributed heavily towards this win. There was Wallace with 18 points, 8 boards and 3 blocked shots. Raymond Felton led the team in scoring with 19 points to go along with 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocked shots. Flip Murray continued to be warm with 14 points and 2 three pointers.
In seasons past, this was exactly the types of game that the Bobcats would lose. Once OJ Mayo hit that 3 pointer to send the game to OT, that would have been the point where the old Bobcats packed it up, folded their tents and called it an evening. Not any more!
Next up, The Houston Rockets.
