Trailing by two without the ball and just 10 seconds left, the Charlotte Hornets pulled off as improbable a win as any this season on Saturday against the Warriors.

Following a missed Andrew Wiggins 3-pointer with 15 seconds left and Golden State up 100-98, Draymond Green would tap the offensive rebound out to Bran Wanamaker. The Hornets, though, would not foul, instead forcing a jump ball.

After a long deliberation as to whether LaMelo Ball or P.J. Washington would jump for the Hornets, Ball would eventually win possession, tipping it to Gordon Hayward as James Borrego signaled a timeout that was awarded to Charlotte with 9.3 seconds left.

Green took exception to the Hornets being awarded the timeout, argued with the officials, received two technicals and was ejected. Rozier knocked down both technical free throws to tie the game at 100, giving the Hornets a chance to win the game outright on the final play.

Rozier took full advantage of the lifeline, knocking down a fadeaway jumper in the corner in front of the Hornets bench as time expired to give Charlotte as improbable a win as ever by a final of 102-100.
