Joe Johnson's Latest Buzzer Beater Lifted Nets Over Thunder (VIDEO)

Mr. Clutch did it again!

Brooklyn Nets veteran shooting guard Joe Johnson added to his collection of buzzer beaters with a game-winning shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. With the Nets and Thunder tied 93-93, Johnson drained a 19-foot jump shot over Serge Ibaka as time expired.

The shot capped a Nets rally that erased a 16-point deficit in the second half. Nets point guard Deron Williams scored a season-high 29 points and set the stage for Johnson's latest hero shot. Following a Nets timeout with 5.8 seconds, Johnson inbounded the ball to teammate Kevin Garnett. After quickly taking the ball back, Johnson dribbled to the top of the three-point arc with Ibaka defending. Johnson then advanced into the paint, dribbled behind his back and rose up for the shot. The six-time All-Star arced his go-ahead effort just over the outstretched hand of the 6' 10" defender who has twice led the NBA in blocked shots.

Johnson, 32, has six game-winning buzzer beaters since the 2007-2008 season, according to Mike Mazzeo of ESPN New York. Earlier this season, he hit a game-winning shot at the buzzer to lift the Nets past the Phoenix Suns.
