Joe Johnson only had 12 points against the Nuggets on Monday night, but 5 of those 12 were the most exciting points of the night.
The last 3 came with 1.3 seconds left in regulation, when Joe Johnson banked in a game-winning 3-pointer. The game-winner was his 7th buzzer beating game-winner in the last 10 seasons, which is the most by any player (Monta Ellis & Andre Iguodala are 2nd with 4 each).
The other exciting pair of points came at the end of the 3rd quarter when broke Jusuf Nurkic’s ankles and hit a jumper. Here’s 5 different angles to enjoy it.
