Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- David Wesley redeemed himself before Tim Duncan could.

Wesley overcame six straight misses by burying two huge jumpers in overtime as the Charlotte Hornets took advantage of six missed free throws by Duncan in the waning moments of regulation en route to an 88-84 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

The Spurs appeared well on the way to extending their season-high winning streak to four games behind Duncan's 26 points and 12 rebounds. But the 7-foot power forward went stone cold down the stretch, misfiring on all six attempts from the line in crunch time, including a pair with nine seconds to go that forced overtime.

Duncan had a chance to beat the buzzer with an off-balance 16-footer from the left corner that fell several feet short of the rim.

"It was a big game," Duncan said. "We had some chances, but I missed some free throws down the stretch. Overall, it was not very good for us down the stretch."

Wesley contributed six bad misses to a nine-minute stretch of futility for the Hornets but finally connected on a 20-footer with 1:49 left in the extra session, snapping a 79-79 tie and opening the scoring in overtime.

"We have a very unselfish team," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "They don't care who shoots. They go to guys who can execute. At the end, we ran a play designed for David. All he has to do is get a little air and he can make the shot. That's why he makes the big bucks. Naturally, we went right back to that play and David hit the shot again."

On Charlotte's next possession, Wesley calmly sank a 22-footer and added two free throws with 25 seconds left to extend the margin to 87-81.

"I've really been finding my shot the last month," Wesley said. "I've always liked coming off the screen. I am comfortable shooting that and used to always practice it on the playground."

Duncan finally answered with a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left, but it was too late to prevent San Antonio's eighth loss in 13 road games.

"Great game," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "Both teams are very similar. Wonderful game for everybody. We had a few chances to come back but didn't take advantage of them."

Wesley scored 21 points for first-place Charlotte, which matched a season high with its sixth straight win.

"Wesley hit some shots down the stretch, so the game ended up being on the other side of the ledger," Popovich said.

Duncan finished with 29 points and 16 boards and David Robinson and Derek Anderson added 12 points apiece for the Spurs, who shot 40 percent (30-of-74) and yielded 25 points off turnovers.

Steve Kerr added 10 points off the bench for San Antonio, which was 19-of-20 from the line apart from Duncan's cold stretch.

Jamal Mashburn had 21 points and 12 rebounds and Baron Davis added 16 points, including a pair of clutch 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as the Hornets avenged a pair of losses to the Spurs last season.

"We are really confident right now," Davis said. "We believe we can play with the best and we believe we are one of the best."

The Hornets shot 46 percent (34-of-74), making 6-of-10 3-pointers, but were outscored, 19-5, at the line.

Consecutive 3-pointers by Davis gave the Hornets a 78-72 lead with 5:13 left, but the Hornets went without a basket until Wesley's big jumpers in overtime. Duncan hit a six-footer and Sean Elliott made two from the line before Anderson drained a 3-pointer with 1:34 left to forge a 79-79 tie.

Duncan had a pair of chances to give the Spurs the win but was unable to deliver as San Antonio's four-game winning streak came to an end.
