Knicks guard J.R. Smith helped New York top the Phoenix Suns 99-97 by hitting an improbable buzzer-beating shot to win the game on Wednesday. The winning shot was Smith’s second of the month, and what made it even more special — aside from the difficulty of it — was that Smith also hit a jumper on the previous possession that tied the game:
Smith had 27 points, six rebounds, and five assists in the win. About the only part of his game he needs to work on right now is his Salsa dance celebration, which isn’t quite as good as fellow New York athlete Victor Cruz’s.
The Knicks are now 21-8 and second behind the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference for best record.

Guess that corner is Smith’s spot, huh?Google+
