    Dirk Nowitzki coming up clutch has become a redundancy for the Mavericks. A night after winning the Crunch honor against Denver in OT, Dirk was back at it on Saturday against the Timberwolves.

    After stellar performances late in regulation and during the first three overtime periods Tuesday, it was no surprise the Nuggets looked to Earl Boykins and Carmelo Anthony to finish off the Suns. With the clock ticking down, Boykins found Anthony, who sank a jumper with 2.9 seconds left in triple-overtime, giving Denver a 139-137 win. Boykins, who finished with a career-high 33 points and added eight assists, also tallied 18 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

He made a layup with 35 seconds left to push Washington's lead to six and added two game-sealing free throws 11 seconds later. For his efforts, Daniels earned 11 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

Brand, who missed the two previous games, outscored the Jazz 6-2 to open overtime as the Clippers notched a 102-93 win.

    Allen
    Jan. 22, 2006
    In the highest-scoring NBA game in 11 years, Ray Allen's 32-footer at the double-overtime buzzer was the difference. Allen, who hit several key baskets en route to scoring 42 points, drained the game-winning 3-pointer over Shawn Marion to give the SuperSonics an exciting 152-149 victory over the Suns on Sunday. Allen finished with 17 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Cassell
    Jan. 23, 2006
    The Clippers could have let up after falling behind by 19 midway through the third quarter. Point guard Sam Cassell wouldn't let them. Cassell scored 13 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, including a key jumper and four late free throws, as Los Angeles rallied to stun the Warriors on the road, 96-93, on Monday night. Cassell notched six Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Iguodala
    Jan. 24, 2006
    With the Kings nipping at their heels Tuesday, Andre Iguodala stepped up to give the Sixers some breathing room. Sacramento had pulled within two points before the second-year guard pushed the lead to five on a 3-pointer with 1:58 to play. The Kings never got any closer and Philadelphia held on for a 109-103 victory. Iguodala scored 11 points on the night and added eight Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Billups
    Jan. 25, 2006
    One-hit wonder Billy Ocean said it best in that classic '80s song, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." That's exactly what Chauncey Billups was at least thinking when he delivered all 23 of his points after halftime in a 106-102 victory over the Bucks on Wednesday. Billups hit the first of two daggers with 57 seconds left in overtime to give Detroit a one-point lead. Then, he nailed a 3-pointer off a high screen-and-roll with 29 seconds remaining to put the Pistons up four. Billups then calmly sunk two free throws to ice the game and seal Detroit's 35th win of the season. Billups scored Detroit's last nine points in overtime and totaled 18 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Garrity
    Jan. 26, 2006
    Pat Garrity had the hot hand all night but saved his two biggest shots for overtime Thursday in Philadelphia. The Orlando reserve forward, who finished with a season-high 24 points, hit back-to-back 3-pointers from the right corner in the extra session's first 62 seconds. The Magic never trailed in the OT and prevailed 119-115 over the 76ers. Garrity tallied 11 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Bryant
    Jan. 27, 2006
    Kobe Bryant must be a union employee, because he did a lot of work in overtime. After scoring 16 points in the fourth quarter, Bryant added nine more in overtime to lead the Lakers to a 106-105 victory over the Warriors on Friday. Bryant scored the first five points of overtime, slamming over the Warriors and hitting a big 3-bomb to put the Lakers up five. From that point, Kobe protected the Lakers' lead by drilling four free throws in the last minute to clinch the home win. Kobe may not have exploded for 81, but he did tally 14 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Gordon
    Jan. 28, 2006
    The Bulls led from start to finish and by as many as 24 points, but that doesn't mean that Chicago didn't need big plays to hang on in its 111-99 home win over the Hawks on Saturday. "Big Shot" Ben Gordon played his usual role, scoring 10 of his team-high 23 in the final 2:28. Ben had buckets on three straight possessions to push the lead from seven to 13, finished it off with four late free throws, and ended up with 11 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    James
    Jan. 29, 2006
    Teammate Jalen Rose will be the star of the highlights after hitting the game-winning jumper with 0.4 seconds left in overtime, but it was Mike James' heroics down the stretch that keyed the Raptors 124-123 victory Sunday over the Kings. James hit three baskets in the extra period, including a jumper with 1:12 left that cut the deficit to one. James also set up the clinching basket when he penetrated and dished to Rose. For his efforts, James notched 12 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    When opportunity knocked Monday night, David West was there to answer. After converting a layup with 7.1 seconds left, the Bucks' Jamaal Magloire missed a free throw leaving the Hornets' deficit at one. West, who finished the game with 24 points and 15 rebounds, hit a foul line jumper with 0.1 showing on the game clock to lift New Orleans/Oklahoma City to the thrilling 94-93 victory.

    Kidd
    Jan. 31, 2006
    On paper, Detroit's visit to New Jersey on Tuesday had mismatch written all over it. The Pistons had won 11 games in a row, while the Nets were riding a four-game losing streak. Thanks to Jason Kidd, those trends were reversed. Kidd, who had 23 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists, drained a key 3-pointer with 48 seconds left and added two free throws to seal New Jersey's 91-84 victory. Kidd notched nine Nestlé Crunch Time points.
