San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin paid tribute to his wife, Morgan, after a heartbreaking 48 hours in the couple’s lives.
“So that’s what’s so cool about the situation is, my wife, how supportive she is and how encouraging she is, all these great things that she does for me to help me go out there and play the way that I did. I think it speaks more about her character than mine because here she is, she could be holding me back, she could make me feel guilty about having to go and play football, which is just a game, in the grand scheme of things, and what we dealt with was a real-life situation, a death. Not only a death but a death to our infant child. So, situations like that, you only make it through that with your faith in God.”
John Wall had 31 points and 11 assists, and Bradley Beal added 22 points for the Wizards.
The Hornets battled back behind the gritty play of Walker. He made a driving layup with 17 seconds left and then added two free throws with 2 seconds remaining to tie it.
Howard blocked Beal’s baseline jumper at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime.
Charlotte carried the momentum into the extra period with Walker knocking down a leaning 3-pointer from the top of the key after a scramble for a loose ball. Lamb followed with a block and a coast-to-coast layup for a 5-point lead.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added a driving layup and Lamb buried a jumper from just beyond the foul line to push the lead to six with 1:24 remaining. But the big basket came when Lamb shot an air-ball on a 3-pointer and Howard grabbed the ball out of the air and laid it in to beat the shot clock.
