31. Jerry West Forces Overtime

Date: 4/29/1970

They called him Mr. Clutch, but after this he should've been named Mr. Refuckingdiculous. In Game 3 of the 1970 Finals, Dave DeBusschere sank a short jumper to give the Knicks a two point lead with just three seconds remaining and the Lakers with no timeouts. Most teams would've conceded the loss, but West, ever the competitor, successfully as the crowd exploded. As would be his luck, the three pointer wouldn't exist for another nine seasons and Lakers went on to lose in overtime.
