After a rare, clutch miss in Game 1, MJ would redeem himself here to bring Game 3 into OT. The stunning shot over Divac's outstretched arms dropped even with MJ unable to follow through due to Divac's length. But it was MJ's clutch defense that truly saved the win - coming up with the crucial strip to prevent LA from taking a clean, game-winner to make sure OT would happen. As usual, making these types of clutch shots and defensive plays in these moments were the norm for MJ so it came as no surprise. And although this game would become the poorest shooting game of the series for MJ at just 11-28, the shots that mattered most in the end all hit nothing but net. Battling tendinitis in his legs, a Laker team at home ready to protect the fort and a twisted knee from the Pistons series, MJ still took it to the hole in the clutch to live up to his flair for the spectacular.

For the record, MJ would end the series with some preposterous numbers: 31.2ppg, 6.6 rebs, 11.4 assists, 2.8 steals, 1.4 blocks, 56.64% FG, 50% 3FG and 85% FT).
