After losing Rudy Gobert just 17 seconds into the game, the Jazz still found a way to steal Game 1 at Staples Center thanks to a buzzer-beater from Joe Johnson

Chris Paul tied things up with a floater off the glass with 13.1 seconds to go, but Quin Snyder elected not to call a timeout, and Johnson came down the other end and won it for the Jazz. 

Going one-on-one with Jamal Crawford, Johnson burrowed his way into the lane, and with just about two seconds to go, put up a little push shot that just barely got up and over the outstretched arm of DeAndre Jordan, bounced up off the back of the rim, then dropped through the net at the buzzer to clinch Game 1 for Utah.

Johnson was impressive all night long, finishing with 21 points on 9-14 shooting to lead the Jazz. It was a bit of a surprising output, as during the regular season Johnson had put together only three 20-point games. 

The good news for Johnson and the Jazz, is that Game 2 isn't until Tuesday night, so Johnson will have plenty of time to rest his veteran legs before trying to come up with another big performance.
