Knicks’ Marcus Morris puts the game away with a stepback 3-pointer over Mavs’ Maxi Kleber

Marcus Morris Sr., Maxi Kleber

New York Knicks forward Marcus Morris Sr.’s amazing start to the 2019-20 NBA regular season continues, as he put away the pesky Dallas Mavericks with one amazing clutch shot on Thursday.

With the game knotted at 101 apiece with under 20 seconds left in regulation, Morris requested for a clear out at the top of the key as he sized up his defender Maxi Kleber.

The 30-year-old swing man created some space with a couple of crossovers and a filthy setback, as he drained a cold-blooded three-pointer just in time to beat the shot clock and give the Knicks a three-point lead.

New York managed to hang on to the victory and notched their third win of the season, as Morris finished with a team-high 20 points to go along with five rebounds.

Morris has been enjoying career-highs in minutes (34.1) and three-point percentage (42.2 percent) in his first tenure as a Knick.

He has also emerged as the team’s leading scorer, averaging 18.5 points per contest.
