Jarrett Jack nails game-winning jumper, lifts Nets over Clippers (VIDEO)
For Nets fans, their favorite part of the above video is Jarrett Jack recognizing the mismatch, crossing over DeAndre Jordan enough to create space and nailing the elbow jumper. That shot lifted the Nets to an upset win over the Clippers, 102-100.
My favorite part? That Jack has to do four jump-and-bumps with teammates after making this shot. I was waiting for Lionel Hollins to come out and do one.
The Nets played solid defense taking away the easy dunks and baskets from the Clippers for the most part, and the Clippers guards Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford could not take advantage, going a combined 15-of-40 shooting. Jordan had 22 points and 20 boards for the Clippers, but if he was not 2-of-12 from the free throw line this game would have ended differently.
Brook Lopez had 24 and Joe Johnson had 22 for the Nets on the night. Deron Williams played 29 minutes in his return and had 15 points on eight shots.
