Atlanta Hawks 119 Charlotte Hornets 122

The start of the season might have been tough for the Hornets, but this game felt good at the time, and has aged very well. No one knew on that day that the Hawks would end up the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. So in retrospect, this was by far the most unexpected victory Charlotte captured.

Al Jefferson was spectacular, scoring 34 points and grabbing nine rebounds in over 41 minutes. Kemba Walker was also brilliant, recording a near triple double with 15 points, 10 assists, and nine rebounds. Even Lance Stephenson looked great for one day, with a 17 point, 13 rebound performance.

This game had everything you could imagine. A big comeback, and a BIG shot by Lance Stephenson, as he banked in a three to win the game.
