Joe Johnson Shocks Oklahoma City Thunder With Game Winner [Video]

The Brooklyn Nets have started out the new year in style with an unlikely win against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Although they needed all 48 minutes to win the game, they finally did with the heroics of Joe Johnson on the last play of the game to lead the Nets to a 95-93 victory.

Deron Williams played great for the a Nets team that looked like they had something to prove. He scored 29 points, with two rebounds and four assists while playing in a lineup which also included fellow point guard Shaun Livingston.

Johnson spoke on the team’s performance after the game.

“I thought as a team we did a great job of keeping it close,” he said. “Coming up with big plays especially in the fourth and down the stretch. We made it tough on KD. Coach drew up the play in the huddle and the rest his history.”

Thunder star player Kevin Durant scored 24 points, but the team failed to keep their intensity as they lost a 16 point lead in the second half of the game.

Brooklyn plays Cleveland Saturday while Oklahoma City plays at Minnesota.
