Thursday wasn't a great night for Hornets fans. David West went down with what appeared to be a pretty serious knee injury and with that, any hopes of making a strong playoff run went down with him.
But if there was something to provide even a slim pick-me-up, it was Emeka Okafor's insane miracle buzzer-beating bank shot that sent the game to overtime, where the Hornets eventually won 121-117. Forgetting what happened to West isn't easy (he has an MRI today), but for a second there, Okafor's shot had to make everyone feel good again.
