J.R. Smith does it again

Published on December 27, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

When the New York Knicks need a shot at the end of the game there is no question that they are looking to get the ball into the hands of J.R. Smith. He already hit a buzzer beater earlier this month to give the Knicks the win and he did so last night in Phoenix.

First Smith hit a jump shot to tie the game at 97 with 10 seconds left. The Suns than turned over the ball with 1 second left and Smith hit the game winning shot off a Jason Kidd bounce pass out of the out of bounds play. The shot was of very high difficulty also.

“I don’t know whatever words you want to use, but he loves that moment,” Knicks Jason Kidd said. “I’m trying to figure out if that last shot was tougher than the one before that he took.”

“It was premeditated,” Smith said. “I was walking around the court going, ‘You are going to make it, you are going to make it.’ I was trying to get my form ready before I even thought about taking it. I was trying to go through my mechanics in my head, get my shoulders square to the basket and just let it fly.”
