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