Charlotte, NC (SportsNetwork. Danny Ferry Jersey .com) - Lance Stephenson banked in a 3-pointer as time expired in the second overtime, lifting the Charlotte Hornets over the Atlanta Hawks, 122-119, on Friday. The Hawks actually had the first chance to break the 119-119 tie, inbounding the ball with 2.7 seconds left. But Kyle Korver was called for an offensive foul. Following a timeout, Stephenson took a pass from Marvin Williams and hit the game-winning shot from the top of the arc. I was confident I could make a shot, said Stephenson. Hopefully that gives me confidence and I start hitting more shots. Stephenson ended with 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Hornets, who have won two in a row since a three-game skid. Al Jefferson added 34 points and nine boards. Al Horford had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawks, who fell to 1-3 on the young season. Jeff Teague and Korver tallied 22 and 20 points, respectively, with Teague also dishing out 15 assists. Our team keeps showing fight, said Horford. Our guys just keep fighting until the last second.

But Korvers offensive foul gave the Hornets another shot. Down 78-70, the Hornets started the fourth quarter on a 9-2 spurt to get within one. They kept it close and were able to tie things up in the final seconds. The Hawks took a 97-94 lead on Horfords slam with 54 seconds remaining.

The Hornets jumped out to a 108-102 lead with 24.3 seconds left in the first overtime. But Teague made a layup and Korver knocked down a 3-pointer after Atlanta won a jump ball to cut the Charlotte lead to 108-107 with 12 seconds to go. Walker responded with two free throws to give Charlotte a three-point edge. Mike Scott got two chances to tie things up at the other end.

The win puts Arsenal four points clear of Everton in fourth place with two games to play in the Premier League, a position which would qualify the club for Europes top competition for the 17th straight year. SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Even when they found themselves in a 3-0 series deficit to San Jose, the Los Angeles Kings never doubted they had what it takes to mount a memorable comeback. Thats what winning a Stanley Cup together two years earlier can do for a teams confidence and thats how a lack of post-season success can eat away at anothers psyche. Anze Kopitar scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period and Jonathan Quick made 39 saves to cap the Kings historic comeback from three games down with a 5-1 victory over the Sharks in Game 7 of their first-round series Wednesday night. "When youve gone to the top of the mountain with the same group of guys its a little bit easier when youre at the bottom to come up," said captain Dustin Brown, who scored an empty-net goal to seal the game. "Thats what a lot of this team is about, our guys who have stuck together and played together for years." Drew Doughty, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson also scored for the Kings, who became the fourth NHL team to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games. The Kings joined Toronto (1942), the New York Islanders (1975) and Philadelphia (2010) as the only teams to complete that comeback and now will get another California showdown in the second-round with the first Freeway Playoff against the Anaheim Ducks. "Thats fantastic," Doughty said. "This is something were all going to remember for the rest of our lives. Were not done yet. We have to move on." Matt Irwin scored the lone goal and Antti Niemi made 25 saves for the Sharks, who added perhaps their most bitter playoff disappointment to a history of them. San Jose has the second most regular-season wins in the NHL the past 10 seasons but has never made it past the conference finals. "This is as low as its been for me, and for the players that have been together for the six years that Ive been here," coach Todd McLellan said. The way the Sharks started this series by outscoring the Kings 17-8 to win the first three games, it looked as if this could finally be their year. But Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and the rest of their stars went mostly missing the final four games, the power play could not convert on its final 15 chances and the defence made too many lapses, leading to their second sstraight Game 7 loss to their California rivals. Brad Daugherty Jersey. "Theres been a lot of low points, but yeah, this is definitely one of them being up 3-0," Marleau said. The Sharks took their first lead since Game 3 in the opening minute of the second when Irwins point shot beat Quick through a screen to provide a jolt to the crowd that only got bigger when San Jose drew a penalty less than a minute later. But a hooking call on Tommy Wingels negated that power play and Logan Couture then got called for an elbowing penalty, giving Los Angeles a two-man advantage for 6 seconds. Before Wingels could get back into the play, Doughty tied it when he beat Niemi from the faceoff circle. The Sharks had three more power plays in the second period to give them a chance to go back ahead, but Los Angeles killed every one of them with Quick robbing Marleau with a glove save on the goal line to thwart San Joses best chance. "Those were obviously critical," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "Jonathan was able to make that one highlight save. I think that gave us a little momentum." That save was emblematic of a remarkable turnaround this series for Quick, who allowed 16 goals the first three games but held the Sharks to just five over the final four wins. The Kings responded after the fourth penalty kill when last years Game 7 hero Justin Williams found Kopitar, who made a nifty move to beat Niemi with a backhand to give him points in all seven games this series. "Drew, Quickie and Kopi were our three best players tonight," Brown said. "You win and lose with your best players." The Sharks lost because their core players came up empty late in the series with Irwin and third-liner James Sheppard getting the only goals in the final three games. "I think their defence just swallowed us up right now, to be honest with you," Thornton said. "They just played real tight defensively and their goaltender got hot like he usually does this time of the year." NOTES: The Kings became the fifth team to beat the same opponent in Game 7 in consecutive seasons. ... Both teams were without a key defenceman as San Joses Marc-Edouard Vlasic missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury and Willie Mitchell was out for Los Angeles after getting hurt in Game 6.
