NBA Play of the Day: Joe Johnson Sends Game To OT Then Wins It

The Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks were locked in a close game throughout on Tuesday night. But the Nets needed a three to force the game to overtime with 6.7 seconds left.

They set the play up for Joe Johnson, who has come through many times for the Nets this season. And, of course, he hits the straightaway three to force the game to overtime.

And then with the game tied at 111 in OT, the Nets had the ball with 5.2 seconds left. Johnson went to the right and then crossed over to his left to get himself open. Johnson had enough space to put up a jumpshot. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute tried to stop the shot but to no avail. Johnson sinks the shot and the Bucks at the buzzer.

Joe Johnson has become more of a go-to guy at the end of games. Teams might want to watch out for that.

Great shots, Joe.
