In a hotly contested fourth quarter, Hornets guard Bobby Brown hit the game-winning basket with less than 30 seconds to go. Both teams led by as many as seven in the game that featured 18 lead changes and 12 ties.
"Coming from a small college and then playing in Europe, its really important for me," Hornets Bobby Brown said after the victory. "Being out here in this atmosphere and playing in the NBA level is a real challenge, so I have to step it up every game."
"I think we gave a great effort tonight, but you can't give up 22 points on the fast break and give up 25 points off of turnovers and win a game, said Bobcats summer league head coach Dave Hanners. "I think we have to be a little bit smarter, and a little more under control and make some plays."
Notes: Both teams will take Monday and will resume action on Tuesday as the Bobcats host the Warriors while the Hornets will take on the Spurs.
