Fisher

O'Neal
May 21, 2004
Minnesota trailed by four but had the ball with 90 seconds to go Friday. Plenty of time to pull out a home win, right? Wrong, said Shaquille O'Neal and Derek Fisher in the form of back-to-back Crunch Time gems that sealed a 97-88 Lakers win. O'Neal capped a dominant performance with a block of Kevin Garnett's layup try, and Fisher hit a 3-pointer the other way to give L.A. a 95-88 lead with 58 seconds left.

    Miller
    May 22, 2004
    Just seconds after ESPN analyst Doc Rivers suggested Indiana should look for Reggie Miller, despite his 0-for-6 shooting to that point, the wily veteran buried a trey with 31.7 seconds left, breaking a tie and propelling the Pacers to a 78-74 win Saturday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Miller's big bucket helped him earn nine Nestlé Crunch Time Points.

    May 24, 2004
    Five Richard Hamilton free throws and one spectacular Tayshaun Prince block sealed Detroit's 72-67 series-tying win. Indiana's Reggie Miller had a breakaway scoring chance that could've tied the game when Prince swooped in with 17 seconds left and notched the most important of the Pistons' 19 blocks. Hamilton and Prince tallied 10 and five Crunch Time Points, respectively.

    Wallace
    May 26, 2004
    Rasheed Wallace's three-point play with 1:32 left answered an Indiana rally that cut Detroit's 12-point lead to one, but it was Ben Wallace who scored the game-saving hoop. After the Pacers made it a two-point game, Big Ben's putback with 31.7 seconds to go iced Detroit's 85-78 Game 3 win on Wednesday. Wallace finished with nine Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Hoiberg
    May 29, 2004
    Minnesota's 16-point lead dwindled to six late in the fourth quarter and momentum was on Los Angeles' side ... until Fred Hoiberg reclaimed it. With 2˝ minutes left, Hoiberg made a move, absorbed a knock on the head from Kobe Bryant and swished a jumper to end the Lakers' 10-0 run. Hoiberg hit the ensuing free throw and Minnesota was able to hang on for a 98-96 win in Game 5 of the West finals.

    Prince
    June 1, 2004
    When things got tight for Detroit down the stretch, Tayshaun Prince stepped up. After Indiana cut the deficit to two, Prince blocked Anthony Johnson's layup attempt with 1:34 to go and nailed a jumper of his own 48 ticks later to seal the Pistons' 69-65 Game 6 win Tuesday, which sent Detroit to NBA Finals 2004. For his royal efforts, Prince received seven Crunch Time points.
