Hornets (23-46), Celtics (36-31)

It was over when… Boston could not get off a shot before the final buzzer after inbounding with just 0.3 seconds remaining, sealing a thrilling New Orleans victory. Anthony Davis scored the first game-winning basket of his NBA career, tipping in a miss to make it 87-86. Officials reviewed the tip-in on replay, but confirmed their initial ruling. The ball was extremely close to being over the cylinder, but appeared to be a millimeter off the rim. As a result, New Orleans ended its four-game losing streak, while capping a two-game sweep of Boston this season.
