When you win 48 games in a season there are a number of plays you can look at as the so called play of the year.
Here are the finalist:
Jae Crowder's layup in the closing seconds at Washington in January:
Avery Bradley elevating for a throw down slam against the Spurs in front of the home crowd:
Thomas' behind the back pass to an open Crowder for three to secure the win against Milwaukee:
Thomas' corner three in Game 4:
Marcus Smart/ Evan Turner's hustle play in Denver:
But the clear cut winner, is the dagger from Bradley to beat LeBron James and the Cavs at home on a cold February night:
Avery Bradley's three-pointer at the buzzer to beat Cleveland:
The pure joy on Bradley' face says it all. The actually execution was a bit sloppy, when Thomas nearly lost the ball, but the knockdown shot by AB was the highlight of an enjoyable 2015-2016 campaign. Even David Lee can't hold back his celebration, as he makes his way from the end of the bench.
Of course, Mike Gorman's call of the heartbreaking make is a bit more uplifting then the sad sacs in Cleveland's version:
