J.R. Smith Costs Knicks the Game Against Houston Because of a Bad Three-Pointer (Video)

The Knicks had their small come-up moment yesterday when it shocked the Spurs in San Antonio with a 105-101 win. That could've turned into a streak with a win against Houston if some people made the right call (evil glare at J.R. Smith).

Tyson Chandler grabbed the rebound after a missed corner three by Beno Udrih, which gave New York the possession with the shot clock off in the game's final seconds. This should've given New York the final chance to break the tie at 100, but Smith—being the shooter that he is—wasn't patient and decided to shoot an immediate three. It misses, Houston gets sent to the line, Knicks lose 102-100, and the Twitter slander starts immediately.

As for why Smith took that shot:

Well, at least he tried to be clutch.

UPDATE: Smith isn't going to ether any critics on Twitter tonight. He admitted he screwed up.
