The Sacramento Kings were in complete control on the road against the Charlotte Hornets with a 22-point lead in the third quarter. That lead shrunk to 17 at the end of the quarter, but the Kings still didn’t seem to be in any kind of danger.
Then things got wild.
Thanks to a ridiculous fourth quarter from Kemba Walker (21 points on 9-of-10 shooting), the Hornets stormed back and looked to have the game won when Kemba scored with 0.7 seconds left:

But Rudy Gay answered with a bucket at the buzzer to tie the game on Rajon Rondo’s 20th assist of the night, a Sacramento-era Kings record:
However, with DeMarcus Cousins sitting in overtime due to some type of injury, the Hornets took home a 127-122 victory. Walker finished with 39 points on 16-of-23 shooting. Cousins had 30 points and Gay had 28 to go along with Rondo’s 20 assists, but it wasn’t enough to avoid the epic collapse.
Charlotte is now 8-6, while Sacramento falls to 5-10.
