This video takes the prize for biggest shot of today.

Mike Dunleavy tipped in a missed Danny Granger jump shot with three seconds left in the clock, to help the Indiana Pacers defeat the New Orleans Hornets, 94-93, on Monday night, December 20.

Dunleavy was the unlikely hero of the game.  He had a subpar night shooting going 3-for-11 from the field. 

"I could see Chris Paul going to help out on Danny, so I just took off to the basket," Dunleavy said after the game.  "Luckily, the ball ended up in a perfect position for me to tip it in."

The Hornets took a 93-92 lead when David West made a 19-foot jumper off of a Chris Paul assist.  But the Pacers were able to pull off the win as time ran out, and the buzzer went off.

Danny Granger was the game's leading scorer with 27 points, six rebounds and two assists.

Emeka Okafor paced the Hornet with 19 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks.

Indiana improved to an overall record of 13-14, while the Hornets dropped to 16-12.
