Horry did not do the right play, but was glorified for it.
This was not PJ Brown Webber was guarding and left at the top of the key, this was a known clutch assassin in "Big Shot Bob."
And like you said, it was a 2 point game. The worst that could happen if Shaq get that board and put it back in was overtime. With Webb now in the pain, he's wide oped at the top of the key for jumper. If Webber is guarding him, that tipped board from Divac get's interrupted, or maybe even goin to Chris instead of Horry.
