    Camby
    April 24, 2005
    Not only did San Antonio have the league's best home record, two-time MVP Tim Duncan was returning to the lineup from injury Sunday. Not exactly the perfect scenario for a Denver upset. Or was it? Andre Miller and Marcus Camby lifted the Nuggets to a stunning 93-87 win in Game 1 of their first-round series. Miller scored 31, but it was a basket he assisted on that was key. He fed Camby for a jumper with 51 seconds left, giving the Nuggets a four-point lead they wouldn't lose. Miller's 10 Nestlé Crunch Time points led the night.

    Miller

    Reggie Miller is not going quietly into that goodnight. After Boston cut the gap to one, the Pacers' guard drilled a jumper to put his squad up by three with 37.1 seconds to play. That shot was all Indiana needed en route to Monday's 82-79 first round series-tying win against the Celtics. For his efforts, Miller earned seven Crunch Time points.

    Haslem
    April 28, 2005
    In Thursday's double-overtime Game 3, Udonis Haslem scored 14 points, but it was his last two that mattered most. With 1:25 to go in the second OT, Haslem skied to grab a board off a Dwyane Wade miss and laid the ball off the glass and in. The bucket gave the Heat a lead they wouldn't relinquish in their 108-105 win. For his clutch play, Haslem earned 15 Crunch Time points.

    Duncan
    May 4, 2005
    In Wednesday's Game 5, Tim Duncan and the Spurs had the chance to close out the Nuggets at home. And, they took full advantage of it. Duncan's two buckets down the stretch helped seal the 99-89 victory. With 1:56 to go, he drove to the lane, spun and lofted a baby hook to the hoop for two. Not even twenty seconds later, he made a great backdoor cut that freed him up to dunk home a beauitiful alley-oop pass. For his clutch play, Duncan earned eight Nestlé Crunch points.
