The Greatest Conference Finals Series in NBA History

2000 Western Conference Finals

Date: May 20-June 4, 2000
Teams and result: Los Angeles Lakers over Portland Blazers in seven games.

Portland held a 15-point lead after the third quarter to make a 3-1 comeback seem all but assured, when they suddenly went ice cold and missed 13 straight shots. This all built up to this play, arguably the most famous "oop" in NBA history; it sealed the Blazers' fate in dignity stealing fashion. The Lakers then went on to go 34-7 in their next 41 playoff games, and won three consecutive titles.
