The San Antonio Spurs weren’t supposed to win this game, but they somehow did. The Spurs appeared to be heading for their third straight defeat against the New Orleans Pelicans this season.
The Pelicans were up by two with 0.7 seconds left after Anthony Davis scored with 0.7 seconds left after getting an offensive rebound on a Tyreke Evans miss. Boris Diaw inbounded the ball from about 35 feet away from the basket and Omer Asik from the Pelicans tipped the ball in after he was trying to keep it from getting to Duncan.
This game is a prime example of how the Pelicans have been a pain in the butt to the Spurs this season.
