Chicago vs. Phoenix: 5 sec on the clock to the end of game 6, in the 1993 NBA finals (3-2 to the Bulls in the series), The Suns were up by 2 points 98-96, Horace Grant with the ball goes in and then passes, not the MJ, but to John Paxson, who was wide open beyond the 3 line. Paxson gets the ball and shoots it in like a champ! The Bulls win the game, win the series and win championship.
Nets vs. Knicks: The Buck Williams- Mickey Johnson duo wins the game for the Nets, with a on the buzzer alleyoop, that ended in 2 points for New Jersey. Johnson started the play, Williams ended it and there you go: 102-100 win for the Nets. Albert King also had a little bit to do with the match result, delivering 20 pts, that night. One of my most remembered games.
Dear lord, my wish is that the ball will go in to the net, Omri Casspi- Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons: with his back to the net and Jonas Jerebko trying to stop his way in the front, Omri Casspi makes an over the head “what the hell, let’s try” shot and the ball goes in!
If they were no surprises in sports the Lakers would have won Game 4 in the series vs. the Warriors (1987 Playoff), but since there are, they faced the greatest basketball performance in Eric “Sleepy” Floyd career. The Warriors guard made that game 51 pts, 10 ast, 4 stl, 3 reb and led Golden State to a 129-121 win.
After making the winning shot in game 6 Charles Barkley went on to lead Phoenix to win game 7 and the 1993 western Conference Finals series vs. Seattle. With Barkley’s 44 pts (19 from 22 in free throws), 24! reb and 1 ast, 1 stl and 1 blk, the Suns won the game 123-110.
It’s the Shaq time baby- When the Lakers met the Pacers in the 2000 NBA finals, it was Shaquille O’Neal who took upon himself to delivers the message – the championship belongs to L.A. By the end of game 1 O’Neal was heard loud & clear all the way to Indiana, with the help of the numbers: 43 pts, 19 reb, 4 ast and 3 blk. The Lakers won the game 104-87.
In the game vs Philadelphia, Kobe Bryant goes up for a 3 pointer (that was ruled later as 2 point shot) and the ball dives in, thus pushing Bryant up the ladder (stepping on Shaq’s head on the way) to the 5th spot in the all-time scoring list, with 28,601 points. Bryant scored that game 28 points.
The NBA summer league game between Memphis and Washington, produced one of the most enjoyable moments in Jeremy Pargo’s career. The Grizzlies guard penetrated Wizards defense like it was air and finished the play with an, oh so cool, no look pass to Michael Watt, for the finish and the foul.
Austin Rivers shows he got ice in his veins, pushing the clock till the last second and then a 3 point shot and it’s in! 85-84 win for Duke and most of the credit goes to Rivers who finished the game with a career record of 29 Pts (six 3s) and of course the shot which won the game.
Game 5 in the Chicago – Cleveland series: 2 seconds on the clock, 100-99 for the Cavs and Michael Jordan shows the world what being a winner looks like- he gets the ball and makes a jump shot that makes him look like he can just stay in air. The ball went in and Jordan won the game 101-100 for the Bulls.
