Postseason heroes are rewarded eternal immortality in Boston — just ask Danny Ainge. Showing he has a nose for big moments, the Celtics fan favorite catches an outlet pass with the clock winding down. With no time or other options remaining, Ainge takes one dribble just over the halfcourt line and buries a one-handed desperation heave as time in the first half expires. The expert marksman was on point in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, converting 7 of 11 field goals — 5-for-6 beyond the arc — for 21 points, four rebounds, six assists and two steals in Boston’s 123-108 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on June 11, 1987.
