Darren Collison hit a game-tying 3 pointer with 7.5 seconds left and tipped the ball away from fellow rookie Brandon Jennings (drafted 10th overall) of the Milwaukee Bucks as time ran out. He then proceeded, with less than a minute left in overtime, to steal the ball from Jennings and force a foul, sinking both free throws to take the lead. He finished with 18 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals.
Not many people expected Darren to get a lot of playing time with a struggling team and a point guard of Chris Paul's caliber in front of him. However, with Paul out, Darren has been doing his best for his team, helping the Hornets to victories in four of their past five games. You make UCLA proud, Darren. Keep it up.
