Round: Eastern Conference Semifinals
Final score: Bucks: 113, 76ers: 112
The Philadelphia 76ers had a tremendous team in the early and mid-1980s, and they were poised to make yet another Eastern Conference Finals trip in 1986 when they took on the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks, however, proved to be a worthy adversary for the Sixers, and the teams engaged in a back-and-forth series that saw Game 7 come down to the final possession.
With just three seconds to go and the Bucks clinging to a one point lead at home, Philadelphia's Julius Erving cleared enough room for himself to get a good look at a jumper from just left of the free-throw line. The ball ricocheted off the players under the basket, falling to the floor as time expired and sending the Bucks on to the Conference Finals.
