Despite being hit hard by injuries, the New York Knicks continue to hold steady near the top of the Eastern Conference standings. One of the team's most impressive wins of the season took place last night at the Garden, where Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith led a 100-83 rout of the San Antonio Spurs. In addition to the big win, Smith had one of the NBA's top highlight reel moments when he threw down a crazy fourth quarter reverse alley-oop
Moving off a pick set by Amar'e Stoudemire at the top of the key, point guard Pablo Prigioni thew a laser to Smith, which he caught with both hands and put home with his right. Overall, J.R. scored 20 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out 3 assists.
For the instant viral clip and early candidate for Dunk of the Year, J.R. rocked the "Cool Grey" Air Jordan Retro 12. Check out the clip above and several game photos below.
