Spurs rally to beat Hornets, 108-103.

Never say die, especially when a 29-17 first quarter lead is lost to the Hornets. Ray Allen did have a looooong 3PTer at the buzzer though, before being outdone by a full-court heave by Tony Parker, after Charlotte retook the lead to make it 47-48 at the half.

Nicolas Batum got hot in the 3rd, and the Spurs cooled, dropping 76-81 before Ray Allen and Tony Parker saved the day again. Two threes by Allen got it back to 85-85, and an 11-2 run by the Spurs in the 4th made the comeback real.

Al Jefferson got a grown-man and-1 play down low in the 4th late, and Charlotte had two chances to take the lead at 99-99, but a three by Allen, Green and Parker's floater sealed the game. Jeremy Lamb missed a chance to tie the game, but it was over.
