Ballin': Joe Johnson Sends Game into Overtime with Buzzer-Beater, Then Hits Buzzer-Beater to Beat the Bucks

San Antonio 108, Sacramento 102: Tony Parker’s 30 points and 11 assists will get all the ink, but wow, Isaiah Thomas has a nice handle.

Brooklyn 113, Milwaukee 111: Joe Johnson (24 points) sent the game into overtime with this clutch three pointer … then Johnson won the game at the buzzer with this shot. Brandon Jennings scored a game-high 34 points in what could be – if trade rumors are to be believed – his last game with backcourt partner Monta Ellis, who might be on the move.

Utah 115, Golden State 101: The no-defense Warriors let the Jazz shoot 50 percent, sink 10 three-pointers, and now have lost six games in a row. Go out and get Mark Jackson a big – you can’t get away with playing Andrew Bogut 15 ineffective minutes against Jefferson (24 points), Millsap (14 points), and Favors (14 points).

Phoenix 102, Portland 98: The Blazers have lost six in a row, and are fading fast in the West. With the Warriors and Blazers hurting, the door is ajar for the dysfunctional Lakers to make a move. It isn’t the fault of Damian Lillard, though – what an insane move this was. He finished with 24 points; JJ Hickson tallied 25 points and 16 rebounds. The Portland bench remains a joke, though – combined, they shot 2-of-15. Goran Dragic had 18 assists for the Suns.

Chicago 96, New Orleans 87: Greivis Vasquez had another 10 assists, Eric Gordon added 20 points, and Anthony Davis had a double-double (15 points, 10 rebounds) but the Pelicans lost again. There’s no Derrick Rose update. Nor is there one for Austin Rivers (19 minutes, 1-of-3 shooting, zero turnovers).
