Joe Johnson came up clutch in Brooklyn, nailing a buzzer-beating bankshot on a play originally designed for another player. Good call Joe.
“The play wasn’t designed for me because we were only down two,” Johnson said. “It was designed to try to get Brook (Lopez) the ball in the paint and get a layup or easy deuce and go into overtime.
“Obviously when I came up to the top of the key, I was wide open. Markel saw me and I knew I had one-point-something (on the clock), so I had enough to at least take a dribble. I was able to take a dribble and I don’t even know how it went in.”
