JR Smith Takes Questionable Late Three-Pointer (VIDEO)


With the game knotted at 100-100 with 22 seconds to go and a fresh shot clock, JR Smith pulled a Bargnani and hoisted a three instead of holding the ball for the final shot. After the game, Smith admitted that he thought New York was down two points.

    I’m starting to think that the Knicks are full of idiots.. Then again, if he’d hit shot, he would be the hero and no one would question his decision..

  • Saleem Rainman

    what an idiot.

    Hey, there have been times when I’m playing pickup and I haven’t known the score so I’ve taken a 3 at the wrong time. Oh wait, when I play pickup I’m not paid millions of dollars and I don’t have a 300 pound scoreboard hanging from the ceiling.

    I didn’t watch the game, but apparently he did that coming out of a time-out. JR Smith Ladies and gentlemen. Paralyzed from the neck-up!

    not as bad as bargs, but still very bad

    Wasn’t JR the first one to put his hands up in disbelief when Andrea pulled something similar to this in (I think) Milwaukee?

  • D

    That’s the problem they all want to be hero’s

  • danpowers

    i was really wondering if something is wrong with jr after he contributed so unselfishly to the win against the spurs. but hey, no need to concern – he is back to normal

  • guest

    what did bargs do again?

  • The Mauve Avenger

    It was an uncontested 3 with the game tied. It was a dumb choice ,but not an awful choice, If he drilled it no one would say a thing.

    Knicks had the lead and only had to dribble out the shot clock or wait to get fouled. After taking a shot and getting the rebound, Bargnani had the ball and hoisted a random 3 that missed. Bucks got the ball and forced double overtime. Knicks still ended up with the W but had to play an uneeded extra 5 minutes

  • Cortez Mack

    Of course he did.

  • VanCityBBall

    It didn’t show on this clip, but the original play coming out of the time out was designed for what looked like should have been a Shumpert 3, but he passed the ball up to eventually Carmelo in the corner- and the clip showed the rest

  • guest

    ah missed that. thanks

  • Caboose

    JR’s whole career could be called “Questionable.”

  • Taylor Reese

    why the foul tho?

  • Ugh

    Coming up next on Slamonline.com:
    * New York teams underperform against smaller market teams.
    * Kobe Bryant is harsh on teammates.
    * LeBron James is very athletic.

    When you’re on fire sure, but you don’t shoot that when you’re 1 for 7 from 3 before that one..

  • melvo

    Even if he made it, I’d still question the shot selection. But we’d probably move on from the subject more quickly. It’s always smarter to go for the tie.
