You may know this game as Mario Elie's "Kiss of Death," but it was so much more than that. Kevin Johnson played perhaps the finest game of his career, scoring 46 points and dishing out 10 assists and sinking his first 21 free-throw attempts.
However, attempt No. 22 rimmed out with 20.4 seconds to go and the game tied at 110, and on the ensuing Rockets possession Elie freed himself in the corner. Robert Horry's cross-court pass found the wide-open swingman, who buried the shot to put his team up for good and into the Western Conference Finals.
