VIDEO: JR Smith hits sensational three-pointer for Knicks

The New York Knicks took a 2-0 series lead over the Boston Celtics last night.

At 2-0 up in the series, last year's Eastern conference finalists the Boston Celtics are being written off already.

The team they are facing in the best of seven match-up are the New York Knicks, who have confounded the pre-season doubts over the age of their squad to not only make the play-offs but to play a starring role.

Led by All-Star Carmelo Anthony, they are a confident team, as illustrated by JR Smith last night.

The winner of the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award scored 19 points, but it was his long-range buzzer beater from nearly a half court which was most impressive.
