It didn't matter how many shots Robert Horry made in his career, it mattered when he made them. Horry has more rings than Jordan, Magic, and Larry. While winning a pair of rings with the Rockets, he set NBA Finals records for steals in Game 2 of the 1995 Finals vs. Orlando. In Game 3, Horry hit a corner three with 14 ticks left to give Houston a 104-100 lead and eventually the win.

With the Lakers he hit game-clinching shots in four consecutive playoff series. During Game 3 in the 2001 Finals vs. Philly, Horry hit another daggar three with 47 seconds left to give them a four-point lead. He was also a 44% FT shooter in those same playoffs and went 4-4 in the last minute to cap the win. Then, with the Spurs, Horry hit a game-clinching three-pointer in Game 5 of the 2005 Finals vs. Detroit, he scored 19 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and OT. Big Shot Bob is a bad man.
