Joe Johnson Broke Some Ankles and Hit a Ridiculous Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater Last Night (Videos)

Joe Johnson must have been feeling it last night.  Sure, the Brooklyn Nets forward only finished with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting, but five of those 12 points were of the highlight reel variety.

First, there was this ridiculous crossover which put the Nuggets’ Jusuf Nurkic on his ass:

Then, with just 1.3 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and his team trailing by 2, Johnson took the inbound pass, dribbled once, unleashed a prayer, and watched as it was answered at the buzzer:

Final score: Nets 105, Nuggets 104.

Bet that’s more excitement than you ever would have expected from a game between these two NBA bottom-feeders.
