Research Notes

  • James Johnson hit a 3-pointer to beat the Knicks on Friday night.The last 4 buzzer-beaters vs Knicks prior to tonight were by a pretty good group of players: Dwyane Wade (2005 Heat), Ben Gordon (2006 Bulls), Kevin Garnett (2009 Celtics), Kevin Durant (2011 Thunder)The last player to hit a buzzer-beater against the Knicks, with his team trailing was another unlikely player-- Scott Padgett for 2005 Rockets.
