With the season almost over, the Nets are trying to grab a final playoff spot, while the Knicks are trying to secure the best lottery odds.
With the game tied at 98, Deron Williams missed a runner that would have broken the tie.
Luckily for him, his center Brook Lopez was right behind him. Lopez made an impressive play where he either tipped the ball to himself off the rebound or missed the shot and scored again on the second rebound.
It looked like a volleyball sequence on the floor as Lopez used his height to bounce the ball around.
The ball would go in and give the Nets the lead with 2.8 seconds remaining. The Knicks would have no answer, and the Nets would pull out a crucial victory.
Lopez had the clear height advantage on the floor as the smaller guards and forwards for the Knicks couldn’t out-jump him for the rebound.
It was an amazing sequence for the big man.
