Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The biggest game of little Darrell Armstrong's career toppled Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs. Armstrong scored a career-high 35 points, including a 3-pointer over Duncan with 1.5 seconds remaining that lifted the shorthanded New Orleans Hornets to a 98-96 victory over the Spurs. Again starting for injured star point guard Baron Davis, the 6-2 Armstrong used his trademark energy and long-range shooting to lead the Hornets back from an 18-point deficit with 17 minutes to play. He made 11-of-21 shots, including 4-of-9 from the arc. "We came out and kept fighting," said Armstrong, whose previous high was 34 at Philadelphia on February 2, 2001. "That says a lot about our character. This team is amazing." "He stepped up in BD's absence, made some big shots down the stretch," Hornets center Jamaal Magloire said. "We have veterans that know what to do and when to do it." There were five lead changes in the final minute. Duncan, the two-time MVP, made a tough fadeaway banker from the left side with 10 seconds left, giving San Antonio a 96-95 lead. With no timeouts, the Hornets moved quickly upcourt. Armstrong got a high pick from Jamaal Magloire and pulled up on the right side, launching a 3-pointer over Duncan that swished through and brought a silence over the crowd of 17,897 at the SBC Center. "Jamaal hit (Tony) Parker and I looked up wide open by myself," Armstrong said. "When you can take the time to shoot it, it's big." "We've done that before," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Oftentimes you get a more open shot than if you let the defense get set and prepared for it." Hornets coach Tim Floyd had discussed a potential last-second shot prior to their previous possession. "We had drew it up in case he hit a shot to come back," Armstrong said. "It wasn't about the plays we drew up," Floyd said. "It was players with a lot of fortitude and playing through a thing or two as well." Duncan, who finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds, fired an airball on a 21-footer. Armstrong scored 10 points in the final four-plus minutes. He got some help from former Spur Steve Smith, who started for the injured David Wesley and scored 12 points, including a pair of 3-pointers down the stretch. "We stayed in it the whole game," Smith said. "Guys on this team have big hearts. Being shorthanded shows how good we can be." Magloire had 17 points and nine rebounds and P.J. Brown added 12 and eight for the Hornets, who have won two in a row after losing six of seven. Former Hornet Malik Rose scored 20 points for the Spurs, who won at Phoenix on Friday on Tony Parker's last-second shot. "This loss hurts, but it will make us better in the long run," Rose said. "We're not playing well right now. We have a lot of room to improve. We know we're still a good team; right now, we're just not playing like it." The Spurs shot 61 percent from the field in the first half, when they led by as many as 18 points before settling for a 52-41 bulge. They rebuilt the lead to 69-51 when Duncan converted an alley-oop pass with 5:01 left in the third quarter. But the Hornets closed to 75-64 after three quarters and kept coming. Armstrong and Smith drilled 3-pointers before a runner by Armstrong tied it, 88-88, with 2:19 to go. Duncan and Armstrong traded hoops before Rose sank two free throws. Another 3-pointer by Smith gave the Hornets a 93-92 lead with 54 seconds remaining. "The play was for me to shoot a two," Smith said. "I was shooting a three, no matter what." Rose made two more free throws, but Magloire gave the lead back to New Orleans on a follow shot with 20 seconds to play.
