Spurs top Hornets on Duncan's shot
New Orleans, LA – Tim Duncan has some life left in his 35- old legs after all, hitting a one-handed fallaway at the foul line with 102.
Carl Landry's tip-in of a Jarrett Jack miss tied the game with 5.2 seconds left, giving San Antonio time to draw up a final play.
The Spurs went to Duncan on the left wing. The future Hall-of-Famer, who sat out Saturday's loss at Houston to rest, dribbled once toward the foul line and lifted a shot in-stride over Emeka Okafor that went through as the eventual game-winner.
Landry had a chance to win it at the buzzer, but his straightaway three-point try fell way short, sending New Orleans to its eighth straight loss.
Duncan finished with 28 points and seven rebounds, while Tony Parker scored 20 to go with a career-high 17 assists for the Spurs.
Jack scored a team-high 26 points, and Landry and Trevor Ariza had 18 apiece in a losing cause.
