The Brooklyn Nets have been on a tough stretch in the absence of the team’s big man Brook Lopez, going 2-5 in the games he missed. Lopez made a return to the court last night, but Joe Johnson stole the show.
In a double-OT thriller in Brooklyn, the Nets managed to outlast the Detroit Pistons after a Joe Johnson buzzer beater.
With 5.8 seconds remaining in the game, Joe Johnson inbounded the ball to Deron Williams, who instantly handed the ball back to Johnson. After a couple of dribbles at the top of the key, Johnson crossed over Tyshaun Prince and hit a stunning stepback jumper at the buzzer.
