Ben McLemore catches alley-oop & hits a 3-pointer to send game into OT vs Jazz
Ben McLemore is quietly putting together a string of highlights and big shots in Sacramento as rookies Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo get all the press as rookie of the year candidates. Last night, Ben, his underrated teammate Isaiah Thomas (26/8) and his immature but dominant teammate DeMarcus Cousins (28/7) ended their six-game losing streak in an OT win over the Utah Jazz. Ben had 15 and 9 and put the game into OT by hitting a 3 pointer with 3.2 seconds left.
“Isaiah was telling me after the huddle that I was going to hit a big shot,” McLemore said. “And I thought I was going to make it even though I had missed a couple of 3s earlier.”
