The New Jersey Nets pulled out a win on Wednesday night over the Los Angeles Clippers in a strange finale where both teams traded the lead in the game's final seconds. The Nets won by a final score of 101-100 on a buzzer beating 3-point shot from Jordan Farmar.
Last-second game-winners are something of a norm in March, but usually on the NCAA side of things, and with the Big East tournament happening just across the river, there was little oxygen for the last place Nets. Fans who missed this game, missed a nailbiter.
Deron Williams got Farmar the ball as the clock expired, just in time for Farmar to sink a 28-foot shot to win the game.
The Nets led by as much as 18 points, but the Clippers fought their way back into the game with 29 points in the fourth quarter. Blake Griffin had 28 points and 17 rebounds. Chris Paul had 22 points and 10 assists.
Deron Williams led the Nets with 21 points and 10 assists. Kris Humphries and Shelden Williams had 11 and 10 rebounds, respectively.
The Nets travel to Charlotte on Friday.
