Notable series-clinching shots in NBA playoff history

In light of Damian Lillard's Game 5, series-clinching 37-foot shot last night, here's a look back at some iconic series-clinching game-winners from recent NBA history.

But with the score tied in the closing seconds, Sampson got the ball to the left of the lane and nailed a jumper at the buzzer for a 114-112 victory that eliminated the Lakers 4-1.

On May 7, 1989 , Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan delivered one of the most legendary moments of his career when he hit "The Shot" to eliminate the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 1989 first-round NBA playoffs series.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were still a legit contender in the 1992-93 season, boasting a core of players consisting of Brad Daugherty, Mark Price and a host of others.

Jordan then methodically worked his way to the right of the free throw line and drained a jumper as time expired from nearly the same spot he sunk the Cavs in 1989.

The Blazers called timeout to advance the ball to half court, where Nicolas Batum hit Lillard, who came off a screen at the top of the key with Parsons trailing him.
