The end of the game between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets was absolutely wild.
Yet, the game came down to a play with 2.2 seconds left when James Johnson drove to the basket and got fouled by Knicks center Mitchell Robinson.
Johnson then nailed two free throws to give the Nets a 112-110 lead, and the Knicks (who had no timeouts) had to take a tough shot at the buzzer, which Evan Fournier missed.
The clip of Johnson getting fouled by Robinson can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from Steve Jones Jr.
After the game, Robinson deleted this tweet that he sent out, which can be seen embedded below in a tweet of a screen shot from Billy Reinhardt.
The Nets advanced to 15-6 with the win, and the Knicks fell to 11-10 with the loss.
