2011 NBA Finals: Game 2
Nowitzki's injured layup
Dallas vs. Miami
95 - 93
June 2, 2011
American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL
A torn tendon wasn't enough to stop Dirk Nowitzki in Game 2 of the Finals. After injuring his non-shooting hand, Nowitzki stayed in and led Dallas on a furious 15-point 4th quarter comeback. With the game tied and 3.6 seconds on the clock, Nowitzki scored the go-ahead layup. He then fell back on defense and registered a monster block to give Dallas the win. Dallas went on to beat Miami in 6 and win their 1st Championship.
2006 Western Conference Semifinals: Game 7
Eliminating San Antonio
Dallas vs. San Antonio
119 - 111
May 22, 2006
AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
Dallas and San Antonio have one of the strongest rivalries of this century, but in 2006 Dallas was the better team. It was a hard fought series and Game 7 came right down to the wire. Down by 3 points, Dallas executed a number of perfect picks to get Jason Terry and then Dirk Nowitzki the ball. Nowitzki took the ball to the basket getting the layup and the foul to tie the game and take it to OT. Dallas won in OT and went on to beat the Phoenix in the Conference Finals.
2001 Western Conference First Round: Game 5
Booth's game winner
Dallas vs. Utah
84 - 83
May 3, 2001
Delta Center, Salt Lake City, UT
Back in the playoffs after a drought that lasted almost all of the 90s, Dallas was eager for a win. It was a hard series against Utah and the final game came down to the last few seconds. With under 10 seconds to go Dallas was down a point. Michael Finley was being double teamed but found Calvin Booth by the basket for the game and series winning shot.
1984 Western Conference First Round: Game 5
Dallas vs. Seattle
105 - 104
April 26, 1984
Moody Coliseum, Dallas, TX
Back in 1984 the city of Dallas cared more about tennis than basketball, and that's why Dallas was forced to host Game 5 of the first round against Seattle in SMU's Moody Coliseum. The game was a wild one and even though Dallas was down with a couple minutes left in the 4th, the loyal fans stayed on their feet. With 47 seconds left Rolando Blackman stole an inbound pass and cut Seattle's lead to 2. Then with 15 seconds left on the clock he hit a jumper to send the game to OT. Dallas won in OT, winning their first playoff series ever.
