Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- In a thrilling battle of point guards, rookie Shaun Livingston outshined veteran Brevin Knight when it mattered most. Livingston scored the game-winning basket with one second left and posted career highs in points, rebounds and steals as the Los Angeles Clippers recorded a 104-102 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. After Knight tied the game for Charlotte at 102-102 with a 3-pointer with seven seconds remaining, Rick Brunson drove the length of the court and fed the 19-year-old Livingston, who put in the game-winning layup. "It was an improvised play," Livingston said. "We didn't draw anything up. We had to get it out. Rick got it out and pushed. I think they were still celebrating or something. He drove all the way down and saw Emeka, so he went up and passed it at the last second. It was a great play by him. I just finished it." "I thought down at the end of the game we finished it off nicely," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "In the fourth quarter, we played a strong game. Livingston did a terrific job playing with five fouls down the stretch. He's a real heady player." The winning basket inexplicably came on a 2-on-1 fast break as the Bobcats' defense was nowhere to be found. "Unfortunately, our transition defense got a little mixed up and we gave up a layup," Knight said. The Bobcats attempted a desperation full-court pass which did not result in a shot. With back-to-back road victories for the first time since November, the Clippers improved to 2-4 on their seven-game trip. Livingston finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and six steals, all career bests. The 6-7 point guard, who narrowly missed a triple-double with nine assists, directed the team late in the fourth quarter, setting up three of the Clippers' final four baskets. "We've struggled on the road and a part of that has been that we haven't had Livingston," Dunleavy said. "We've been missing some guys that have been good finishers. ... He was doing things that we didn't do. He had a huge steal and a big rebound and that was all in the last three or four minutes of the game. A big part of winning down the stretch is having a guy like that to make all those plays." Knight, Charlotte's 5-10 guard who leads the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio, finished with 21 points and 13 assists but committed a late turnover - his lone giveaway of the game - and directed several late sloppy possessions as the expansion Bobcats lost their fifth consecutive game. "Effort-wise we were OK, but cerebral-wise we weren't," Charlotte coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "We all look at the last few minutes of the basketball game. But, if you do what you're supposed to do leading up to that point, the score is not that way." Corey Maggette scored 34 points for the Clippers, sinking 15-of-16 free throws. Elton Brand added 27 points and 10 boards. "Free throws were key for us tonight," Maggette said. "We practice a lot on free throws. I'm just glad our team has been poised going to the free-throw line." Gerald Wallace scored 19 points and rookie Emeka Okafor added 17 with 10 rebounds for the Bobcats, who have lost five games this season on the final possession. They dropped to 5-13 in games decided by three points or less.
