Lamb's half-court heave beats buzzer, Raptors

From Staff

The seventh-year guard’s 48-foot heave defied gravity, the game clock and Pascal Siakam’s blanket defense to give Charlotte a miraculous 115-114 win at Toronto as time expired.

The victory came fewer than 24 hours after the Hornets rallied from an 18-points fourth-quarter deficit to defeat Boston on Saturday. Charlotte trails eighth-place Miami by two games with just nine remaining.
