Best Clutch Player 

Damon Jones

For all LeBron did last season (pretty much everything), give D-Jones props for two big hunks of clutch. In March, the Cavs' highest profile free-agent signing was battling the flu and trumped-up allegations of sexual assault. Then, because the week needed one last touch of drama, he buried a game-winning three-pointer to extinctify the Raptors. The streaking Cavs would take 14 of their last 20 games to earn a four seed in the conference playoffs. Jones' contributions were minimal -- 24 minutes, three points -- for virtually all the team's first-round series against Washington. But he made himself cost-effective nonetheless: A last-second baseline jumper clinched it -- wine and gold, in six games. Not bad for 14 seconds.
