Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Iman Shumpert had an unforgettable game in San Antonio, highlighted by two clutch shots in the fourth quarter, to deliver a Knicks victory.

Iman Shumpert scored a career-high 27 points and delivered back-to-back knockout blows in the final minute of the New York Knicks' 105-101 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Shumpert drained a three-point shot with 37 seconds left in the game after a wild scramble for a loose ball at halfcourt, but Marco Belinelli responded with a three of his own to tie the game at 101. The Knicks went to Carmelo Anthony in the following possession; he missed a corner three attempt, but Shumpert soared up and tipped in the offensive rebound with one hand for the go-ahead bucket.

Anthony scored 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting in his first game since spraining his ankle against the Orlando Magic. He also had 12 rebounds. Shumpert was efficient while reaching his career-high scoring total. He finished the night 10-of-13 from the field while also making six of his eight three-point attempts.

Belinelli scored a team-high 32 points for San Antonio, but Tim Ducan and Tony Parker combined for just 21 points on 8-for-21 shooting. Manu Ginobili went 4-of-11 from the field, finishing with 11 points and 12 assists.
