Gerald Henderson picked the wrong night for some late-game heroics.
Less than an hour after second-year star Kyrie Irving hit a game-winning three pointer to clinch a victory for the Cavaliers, Henderson did the same, though the Bobcats didn’t make it look quite as easy. It took nearly the entire 24-second shot clock for Charlotte to get the ball off, and the Bobcats (or Cats, according to their alternate jerseys) nearly turned the ball over four separate times during the sequence.
Henderson finally hit the game-winning trey to push Charlotte ahead of the Minnesota Timberwolves 102-101 with 4.6 seconds left on the clock. The Bobcats snapped a 16-game home losing streak with Henderson’s clutch shot. They were just two games shy of the NBA record held by the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks.
