Video: Knicks' Tim Hardaway Jr. skies over Heat's Ray Allen for putback dunk

Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. skied for a putback dunk over Heat guard Ray Allen during New York's 89-85 victory at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

With less than a minute remaining in the third quarter and New York leading 73-69, Amar'e Stoudemire popped to the free throw line to put up a fallaway turnaround jumper. The shot rimmed off long, but Hardaway charged in from the left corner, jumping up and over Allen to grab the offensive rebound and stuff home a dunk in one quick motion.

The 21-year-old rookie out of Michigan produced a nice poster co-starring the 38-year-old Allen. Watch out below.

Hardaway finished with just five points (on 2-for-4 shooting), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes, but the Knicks were able to defeat the two-time defending champions by putting five guys into double figures. Carmelo Anthony led the way with a team-high 29 points (on 12-for-24 shooting), eight rebounds and five assists. Andrea Bargnani added 19 points (on 9-for-13 shooting) and five rebounds.

LeBron James scored a game-high 32 points (on 12-for-17 shooting) and added six assists and five rebounds for Miami. Dwyane Wade added 23 points (on 11-for-15 shooting), four rebounds and two assists in a losing effort.

New York improved to 13-22 with its third straight win, moving within one game of the playoff picture in the East. Miami dropped to 27-9 with the loss.
