In a season full of improbable wins, Sunday’s comeback win for the Hornets might be the most incredible of the season to-date. Down eight points without the ball and 60 seconds left, the Hornets pieced together a remarkable 12-3 run capped off with a Malik Monk and-one with 1.4 seconds left to seal a 127-126 win.

Terry Rozier started the comeback with a 3-pointer with 52.4 seconds left. After a pair of missed Marvin Bagley III free throws, Rozier was fouled on a 3-pointer and converted all three freebies, pulling the Hornets within two at 123-121.

De’Aaron Fox extended the Kings lead back to two possessions with a floater with 23.8 seconds left but P.J. Washington responded with a 3-pointer to pull Charlotte within a point.

Buddy Hield would split a pair of free throws with 10.7 seconds, giving Charlotte a chance to tie or take the lead. Monk grabbed at the opportunity, getting to the rim and finishing through contact from Richaun Holmes to get the and-one and seal the win for the Hornets.

Monk finished with 21 points, LaMelo Ball had 24 points and 12 assists and P.J. Washington had a game- and career-high 42 points.
