12. Kenny Smith
Round: 1995 NBA Finals, Game 1
Matchup: Rockets @ Magic
Stats: 8-for-13, 23 points, 3 rebounds, 9 assists
The Houston Rockets were very much "Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, and everybody else" in 1995, but in Game 1 of the Finals it was a different player who would step up and lead his team to victory. Kenny Smith was no slouch, but in this game he caught fire in a way that got his name into the history books.
Creating his own shot off the dribble and embarrassing whoever tried to guard him, Smith buried a then-Finals record seven three-pointers as the Rockets won by two in overtime. Smith was the reason the game even went to overtime, as he followed up Nick Anderson's famed 0-for-4 at the free-throw line with a game-tying three.
