    March 2, 2005
    Minnesota threatened in the closing minutes Wednesday, but Jason Richardson had other ideas. His 3-pointer stretched Golden State's lead to seven at the 1:00 mark. Then, after a Kevin Garnett basket, J-Rich responded with another trey with 24.5 seconds left, putting the Warriors up eight en route to a 99-93 victory. Richardson added two free throws with 18.4 ticks left and finished with 13 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    They say defense wins championships, but offense had something to say about that Thursday in Phoenix. In one of the season's best games so far, the high-flying Suns rallied to beat the Pistons 100-97, ending Detroit's eight-game win streak. Steve Nash scored nine in the final period, including a 3-pointer with 1:06 play that bolstered Phoenix's lead to four.

With L.A. up one, Bryant grabbed a rebound, ran the length of the floor and calmly laid it in with 1:10 to go. Then, back on defense, he blocked Dirk Nowitzki's shot, started the break, dished to Jumaine Jones, and dunked his teammate's miss for a 98-93 lead.

His first, a layup, opened the OT scoring 33 seconds in; then, with 2:02 left, his 3-pointer gave the Pistons a 108-104 lead.

The 39-year-old Indiana great, who will likely retire at season's end, lit up the Lakers for 39 points, none of them bigger than his 3-pointer with 59 seconds left that gave the Pacers a five-point lead. Miller then went 6-of-6 from the free-throw line to seal the win, earning 15 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

He added two free throws with 13.3 seconds to go and an icing-on-the-cake dunk seven seconds later that wrapped up the 96-91 verdict over Portland.

    Gooden
    March 28, 2005
    Cleveland trailed by 17 points early in the fourth quarter Monday, but the Cavaliers stormed back and -- thanks to Drew Gooden being in the right place at the right time -- beat New Orleans in overtime. LeBron James, who scored 44, missed a layup, but Gooden grabbed the rebound, sank the putback and drew the foul. He sank the game-deciding free throw with eight seconds left as Cleveland prevailed 109-108. Gooden earned 10 Nestlé Crunch Time points.

    Gordon
    March 30, 2005
    Ben Gordon delivered one of the most impressive Crunch Time performances of the season, making four field goals in the final two minutes of Wednesday's 102-99 Bulls victory over the Bobcats. A fadeaway with 1:47 left tied it 93-93 and another fadeaway 33 seconds later knotted it again. But the rookie saved the best for last, unloading a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute that put the Bulls over the top. Gordon racked up 15 Nestlé Crunch Time points in all.

    March 31, 2005
    The Pacers have had the Heat's number three seasons running, but Thursday's 114-108 overtime win particularly stood out, Indiana's 12th straight in the series. With Indy down six, Anthony Johnson hit a deuce and a trey 28 seconds apart, and Stephen Jackson's 3-pointer knotted it with 0.2 ticks left. Then, trailing by four in OT, Johnson and Jackson nailed back-to-back threes before Reggie Miller iced it from the baseline with 36.4 seconds remaining. Johnson headed the group with 15 Nestlé Crunch Time points.
