Haslem
Yes, MVP Dwyane Wade proved to be the best player on the floor during The Finals, but the reason the Heat captured the first NBA title in their 18-year history had a lot to do with the play of Udonis Haslem. Haslem posted a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds in the decisive Game 6 as Miami polished off Dallas with a 95-92 victory Tuesday night. The power forward saved his best for last. With the Heat clinging to a one-point lead, he drained a crucial jumper that pushed the advantage to three with 1:21 left to play. Haslem also pulled down two key rebounds down the stretch to finish with seven Nestlé Crunch Time Points.

    Nestle Crunch Time Rating
    The Nestle Crunch Time Stat was designed by the NBA and Nestle to provide an innovative way to measure "Crunch Time" performances -- players who step up when the game is on the line! A formula has been created to measure the top Nestle Crunch Time players, and the formula kicks in when Crunch Time kicks in -- the last two minutes and all overtime periods.

    Here's the formula:

    (PTS + REB + AST + STL + BLK) - ((FGA - FGM) + (FTA - FTM) + TO) + 4 points if their team wins

    Note: If the point differential of the game is greater than 15 points at the two-minute mark, only the losing team's players will be eligible to earn Crunch Time points.
