Take a trip down memory lane as we share a crazy moment at the podium, an amazing posterization, an absolute on-court fail or a memorable shooting performance from the postseason of the National Basketball Association in This Day in NBA Playoffs History.
It doesn't matter how great you are, every player will have, at least, one bad day at the office. In Game 5 of the 1997 Western Conference Semis against the Utah Jazz, Kobe Bryant had one of those moments, playing an absolutely terrible game by shooting 4/14 from the field and 0/6 from beyond the arc for a grand total of 11 points. And if those numbers weren't horrifying enough, the icing on the cake came in the form of four airballs tossed up by a rookie Bryant. It was an all-around pitiful night which Kobe stans have probably wiped from their memory...until today.
