J.R. Smith’s First Quarter Buzzer Beater vs. Celtics in NBA Playoffs 2013 [VIDEO]
[VIDEO] – J.R. Smith is reminding everyone why he was named the 2012-13 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
In Tuesday’s Game 2 of the Knicks-Celtics opening round playoff matchup, Smith ended the first quarter with a flurry that had the MSG crowd roaring. He hit a tough jumper, immediately forced a turnover by Paul Pierce – who should have been called for an offensive foul – then with four seconds on the clock, moved the ball the just a few feet inside the half court line and drilled a 3-pointer as the quarter expired (courtesy of complex.com).
Ironically, Smith’s dazzling play came exactly four weeks after this buzzer beater, also versus the Celtics. On March 26, Smith did virtually the exact same thing, but in Boston, to end the third quarter.
