Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy and Hawks’ Al Horford hit game winning shots
The Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy and Hawks’ Al Horford were the last second heroes Friday night after hitting game winners for their teams. Horford also had 15 rebounds and a career high 34 points to go with his 12 foot game winner in OT vs the Wizards.
Dunleavy only had 12 points but was lucky enough to hit a bank shot 3 pointer with 5.8 seconds left.
When it left my hand, I thought it had a good chance to go in. I thought it was going to bank in because Henson was out there and I had to get it up over his outstretched arm. The second it left my hand, if I needed to call ‘bank’ I would have called ‘bank.’ But when I went in to gather for the shot I didn’t intend to bank it. It was on-line and it was long. When it left my hand, I thought, ‘This is going to bank in,’ and it did.”
