Hornets guard Courtney Lee hit the shot that gave Charlotte a 3–2 series lead in its opening-round series against Miami, thanks to a little massage therapy and bible study.
Lee grabbed a crucial offensive board with under 30 seconds to go in a one-point game, and moments later buried a three to put Charlotte ahead for good, 90–88 with 25.2 remaining.
After the game, Lee credited a recent combination massage-bible study session with helping him hit the game-winner.
The Hornets picked up their third straight win, and earned the chance to clinch the series at home on Friday. More prayer and massage therapy will certainly be in store.
