"My goodness!"

TNT announcer Steve Kerr captured the general feeling among New York Knicks fans when Tyson Chandler slammed home a putback dunk over Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace of the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on Monday night.

The basket, coming off a missed jumper by Carmelo Anthony, pulled the Knicks within a point of the Nets, 16-15, in the first quarter. Thanks in large part to Chandler's 28 points and 10 rebounds, the teams would be deadlocked at the end of 48 minutes. Although the Nets would prevail in overtime, winning the first matchup of the teams since the Nets hopped the Hudson, Chandler's 12-13 shooting performance was arguably the most impressive takeaway from the game.
