Joe Johnson hit a buzzer-beating game-winner with 5.8 seconds left in the Brooklyn Nets' 95-93 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Brooklyn oustcored Oklahoma City 29-16 in the fourth quarter, capped off by this big shot from Johnson:
The Nets were down by as many as 16 points, but Paul Pierce scored five straight points late in the fourth quarter to bring Oklahoma City's lead down to one with 3:36 left. Deron Williams followed up Pierce's scoring burst with a three to give the Nets a two-point lead, and Johnson finished the comeback in the final possession of the game.
Williams had huge game, shooting 58 percent while scoring seven points in the fourth quarter and 29 points total. Pierce finished with 18 points. Johnson had shot just 3-for-10 prior to delivering the knockout blow to the Thunder.
Kevin Durant scored a team-high 24 points, but played just 16 second-half minutes because of foul trouble. Oklahoma City's bench did well without Durant, however, combining for 34 points. Perry Jones led the bench attack, scoring 11 points and making three three-point attempts. Derek Fisher, Jeremy Lamb, Steven Adams and Jones all scored at least seven points. Reggie Jackson scored nine points.
