Watch: Arron Afflalo forces overtime against the Bobcats

The veteran swingman nailed this clutch three-pointer with seven seconds to play in regulation.

Nikola Vučević's 24-point, 23-rebound effort led the Orlando Magic in their 110-105 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday, but the team couldn't have prevailed were it not for the efforts of Arron Afflalo word. The veteran swingman scored 10 of his 17 points after halftime, including the game-tying three-pointer with 7.4 seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime, helping Orlando to complete the 16-point comeback.

On the play, video of which is embedded above, Afflalo and Vučević play a two-man, pick-and-roll game on the right side of the floor off a sideline out-of-bounds set. Bobcats defender Gerald Henderson makes a fatal error when he goes under Vučević's screen as Afflalo dribbles from his right to his left toward the top of the arc. Henderson tries to recover to Afflalo, but earns a Vučević forearm for his troubles, not to mention Afflalo's hitting a wide-open look to tie the score.

Charlotte coach Steve Clifford didn't hide his frustration after the game.

"We went under [the screen]," Clifford said. "He just made a mistake. Game on the line, all you've got to do is do what we're supposed to do right there and the game ends. That was it."

Afflalo added four points, all on free throws, in overtime. The Magic took the lead for good on a Jameer Nelson triple with 2:26 to go and thus picked up their second consecutive win.
