34. Jerry West Steals a Game in 62' Finals

Date: 4/10/1962

The Lakers and Celtics rivalry was particularly lopsided in its early goings, but there were moments when it seemed the purple and gold were destined to prevail. With three seconds remaining in Game 3 of the 1962 Finals, Jerry West stole Sam Jones' inbounds pass at midcourt and raced to the basket to give Los Angeles the victory. Eventually they'd fall in overtime of the seventh game, but this moment lives on in NBA playoff lore.
