NEW YORK—Amar’e Stoudemire drained a game winning three-pointer with only negative .3 seconds left to propel the resurgent Knicks past the Boston Celtics. Boston thought they had the victory in hand after Paul Pierce drained a go ahead, turn around jumper with only positive .4 seconds left, but the Knicks and Stoudemire had time to take one last shot.
“I knew when the clock read 0.0 and the red light went off that I would need to get a shot off soon,” said Stoudemire after the game. “I was able to get separation on the inbound pass and win the game just mere moments after regulation ended. The crowd went nuts too. I guess it’s not everyday you see a game winning shot after the game is officially over, but last night they did.”
