LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Danny Green sank a 3-point shot with 9.3 seconds to play Tuesday that lifted the San Antonio Spurs to an 84-82 road win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Spurs went to Green rather than one of their frontline scorers on the play that was set up during a San Antonio timeout and then played solid defense that forced Pau Gasol to take a tough 3-point try on the Lakers last possession.
Green finished with 11 points for the Spurs who prevailed despite shooting 38.9 percent from the field and being outrebounded 48-38.
The Lakers led 43-38 at halftime but were outscored 22-16 in the third quarter.
