I believe Jordan hit the only one where his team would have been eliminated with a miss.
And I think it means a lot more when you are not tied. If you have that safety valve of knowing you can go to OT, the pressure isn't the same. From that list above, it looks like only MJ and Dame have hit a shot in that circumstance.

Yep. And Dame’s shot was in game 6 I believe, so the series wouldn’t have been over if he missed

yeah, it is crazy to think that has only happened once with a series on the line.

I think a lot of people forget how good the Ws are and can be, even without Durant.
I always liked them better without Durant.

that was just a ridiculous ending to the game. Good for Toronto. I don't think there is a single player in Philly I root for.
I'm really happy for Toronto and their fans. So many playoffs where they got ousted early.

I feel like the WCF will be a sweep.

I feel like our regular season will be a sweep. 0-82.

No, don’t mark it.

Man, Bledsoe’s shooting is horrible. The only reason the Bucks won game one was because Brook Lopez went crazy from 3 after missing his first 5.

I only saw the extended full game highlight video on YouTube. It looked like Toronto was in control for about 40 minutes of the game and sort of blew it near the end.

A lot of the shots Milwaukee made looked really difficult, especially some of the threes from their big guys and Bledsoe's drives to the rim.

He was 3-12 and every outside shot missed in different ways, sometimes missing the rim entirely. Woof.

He’s been very good for them this year though.

It is kind of reassuring to know that Bledsoe will choke if he has to take any big shots in tight playoff games. It's like having an inside man sabotaging the Bucks.

I think that was the series...Portland didn’t really have much of a shot, but they needed that game

Healthy Draymond is probably the best possible PF fit for the Suns in the NBA, even with his wonky 3-point shooting. His passing, defense and energy would all be amazing for us.

I was just coming here to post something along those lines. Portland played great, and if they'd won Game 2 in Oakland, I think they had a puncher's chance to pull off an upset in the series. But they let it slip through their fingers. I still think this is a five-gamer.

I think Portland will win both games at home if KD remains out.

Dammit Portland!

Yeah, it's too bad Portland couldn't put up any fight. No Durant and then this. Every other round with them was closer. It's a shame.

Lillard is hurt apparently. Separated a rib during game 2
