    “Killer” tendencies.

    i like nowitzki´s a bit more

    u guys are going a bit overboard with this “killer” stuff… if im not mistaken, this is his first buzzer beater of his career

  • barnabusb

    Not bad, but Kobe could obviously do it better.

    (I kid, I kid)

    I took the Knicks in this game and lost the bet Grrrrrr.

    Love how he walks off like ‘whatever’ haha…and the fact they needed any basket to win, and he goes for a crazy pull-up three.

  • greg

    leave it to ny to put gallinari on durant for the final shot-_-

  • bashmo

    its not actually his first buzzer beating game winner of his career. He had one in his rookie season against atlanta while still on the Sonics. youtube search it. hell of a shot

    One of the worst possible shots but hey it went in so props. But really, a fade away 3 pointer? Not smart. Crowd went crazy tho, I accidentally jumped up and landed hard on the foot of the lady next to me. She has to have at least a broken toe. O well.

  • Lake

    HAHAHA the commentator made the play even more awesome!

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    The best thing about this is watching Gallinari’s horrible attempt at staying in front of his slow-moving and unagressive man. Ha ha ha. Terrible defence,

    ^ He’s not the best defender in the world, but that was pretty good defense on a fade-away 3 pointer.

  • Jordan Bravo

    lmao again NEW YORK GETS ICED!

  • http://thephotoriot.com davidR

    how else would you defend a fadeaway 3 at the buzzer, when the game is tied?

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Hes only good because of westbrook

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    When he started dribbling laterally towards the sideline with less than 2 seconds left, why not get closer to him? He has nothing on his mind besides pulling up for the J.

  • http://www.slamonline.com THE REAL RIGGS

    you can call it a stupid shot until you realize that not only is that his spot, he has hit that shot more often than not.

  • http://nicekicks.com Meloman2.0

    sorry, 2nd buzzer beater. But still, someone with the star power and the oppertunities and “ice in veins” like KD should have a bit more by now. He’s struggled in the clutch for the majority of his career

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    How do you defend a…? Seriously? Here’s two ideas – (1) STAY SQUARE TO YOUR MAN, DO NOT EVER TURN SIDE ON and (2) PUT YOUR HAND WHERE YOU CAN FEEL HIS NOSE HAIRS ON YOUR WRIST. Yeesh.

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    There was really nothing wrong with that defense. He stayed in front and contested the shot as best he could. He would have tried that hand in the face stuff, got called for a foul and you same people criticizing would have called him an idiot for fouling a jump shooter.

  • KwamePooh

    @melo true. but hes 22, i guess he will have his moments.
