Sam Jones was one of the guys that invented the word "clutch." Time and time again he came through when it counted to help Boston win 10 titles. "The Shooter" was never rattled, always calm. He was consistently one of the leading scorers during the time when the Celtics were winning championships every year. His shot of choice was the bankshot and he owned it.
