Round: 2011 Western Conference Semifinals, Game 4
Matchup: Lakers @ Mavericks

With the Lakers already on the ropes, sixth-man extraordinaire and headband pioneer Jason Terry knocked them out and sent his Mavericks on to the Conference Finals with an outstanding performance in Game 4. Terry helped Dallas open up a 24-point halftime lead with a second quarter avalanche of three-pointers, then put the game away at the start of the third with treys on consecutive possessions. He ended up tying an NBA playoff record with nine made threes, going 11-for-14 overall from the field in just 25 minutes of action.
