Nets Hit Buzzer-Beater to Edge Clippers
Jordan Farmar hit a 3-pointer from the right wing with 0.2 seconds left and the New Jersey Nets squandered an 18-point, second-half lead before beating the Los Angeles Clippers 101-100 on Wednesday night.
Deron Williams had 21 points and picked up his 10th assist with a pass to Farmar as the Nets won the chippy contest that featured five technical fouls.
Chris Paul put the Clippers ahead for the first time since the opening minutes when he made two free throws with 8.9 seconds to play after being fouled 20 feet from the basket.
Williams nearly lost the ball on the Nets’ first inbounds play and the ball went out of bounds near halfcourt. Williams took the ensuing inbounds pass from Farmar and returned the ball for the game-winning shot.
