Hornets advance to Round 2

By Charles Chandler, Staff Writer

   Alonzo Mourning said nothing like it has ever happened to him.
   And nothing like it has ever happened to Charlotte.
   Mourning hit a 19-foot jump shot with 0.4 seconds left Wednesday to put the Charlotte Hornets into Round 2 of the NBA playoffs with a 104-103 victory over the Boston Celtics.
   "I'd just call it a lucky shot, to tell you the truth," Mourning said.

Were you there? What do you remember?  What was the vibe in Charlotte?
