Vujacic
Dec. 1, 2005
Kobe Bryant sent the game to overtime, but after he fouled out, second-year guard Sasha Vujacic introduced himself in front of a TNT national audience. First, his two free throws with 1:23 left gave the Lakers a one-point lead. The Jazz would go back on top, but Vujacic had the final say, draining a 3-pointer with 20.1 seconds remaining to put Los Angeles up by two. The Lakers went on to the 105-101 triumph behind 10 Nestlé Crunch Time points from Vujacic.

    In a close game against the Hawks, Chris Bosh came up big for the Toronto Raptors. First, Bosh hit a layup with 1:49 left and drew a foul to break a tie and give his team a three-point lead. Then, after Atlanta went ahead by two, Bosh scored again, hitting a tough runner in the lane with only 43 seconds remaining to tie the game at 98. The Raptors went on to a 102-101 victory thanks in large part to Bosh's 10 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    The Heat leaned on Dwyane Wade while Shaquille O'Neal missed 18 games with an ankle injury and continued to depend on him Sunday despite O'Neal's return to the lineup. O'Neal forced overtime with a free throw in the final second of regulation, but it was Wade that sealed Miami's 104-101 overtime win over Washington. Wade gave the Heat a 100-98 lead with 2:03 to play in overtime on a jumper and pushed the margin to 102-98 on another basket with 52 seconds remaining. The guard added two free throws with under a second to play, securing the victory. He finished with a season-high 41 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and eight Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    The Pistons have come to expect Chauncey Billups to take -- and make -- a big shot with the game on the line. Tuesday in Memphis, he had not one, not two, but three chances to do just that. After missing on potential game-winners at the end of regulation and the first overtime, Billups made sure the third time was the charm. His jumper with three-tenths of a second left in the second OT answered Damon Stoudamire's game-tying 3-pointer and gave Detroit a 106-104 victory. Billups drained four Crunch Time field goals in all, good for 13 Nestlé points.

    Bogut
    Dec. 20, 2005
    The first time Bucks' rookie Andrew Bogut played the role of hero this season, it was his defense that saved the day. On Tuesday, it was his offense that helped Milwaukee beat the Spurs 109-107 in overtime. With the score tied, Bogut banked a short jumper as time expired. Three weeks ago, his blocked shot preserved the Bucks' OT win against the Mavericks. For his efforts, Bogut finished with 12 Nestlé Crunch points.

    Daniels
    Dec. 21, 2005
    Washington was in control late in Wednesday's game at Denver, but with the home team crawling back, the Wizards needed a final push. Enter Antonio Daniels. After a Carmelo Anthony layup cut the Wizards' lead to five, Daniels calmly hit a pull-up jumper with 1:57 remaining to raise the margin back up to seven. Daniels protected the lead down the stretch by going 4-of-4 from the free-throw line to deliver the Wizards a 116-110 win in Denver. For his efforts, Daniels finished with 11 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Terry
    Dec. 23, 2005
    Dallas became the third NBA team to reach 20 wins this season thanks in part to Jason Terry's late-game prowess. His 3-pointer at the two-minute mark put the Mavs up one, his assist on Dirk Nowitzki's dunk with 46.9 seconds left gave Dallas the lead for good, and his trey with 18.8 seconds to go made it a four-point game en route to a 101-98 victory at Seattle. He also hit 3-of-4 free throws in finishing with 15 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Stoudamire

    The Grizzlies were down five to the Lakers in L.A. with 90 seconds to play. No problem for Damon Stoudamire. The veteran guard drained a 3-pointer with 1:01 left; then, after a Laker free throw, he hit another trey with 28.2 seconds to go, forcing overtime. Memphis took control in OT and Stoudamire's layup with 1:34 left made it 100-92, but that bucket proved big as the Grizz had to hold on for the 100-99 win. Stoudamire earned 11 Nestlé Crunch Time points.
