2007 NBA Playoffs, second round, Warriors vs Jazz, Game 2 (I think).

Warriors were going to win that game and go back to Oracle tied 1-1, then Derrick Fisher comes in after going to see his daughter with her eye cancer stuff, then draines a bunch of threes to help the Jazz win the game and later on win the series

That game was pretty intense. Especially with Fish hitting a big shot(s) at the end of the game.

2006 playoffs. raps vs nets game six. bosh drains a tough shot off the backboard. but then at the other end lets richard jeff out muscle him in the paint for the bucket. and then jose who hadnt had one turnover the whole game turns it over.

game 4 vs magic 2010 (very unnessesary)

Why did you remind me of that game!?

Jesus. Being up 3-1 in that series and losing hurt. Especially with Kobe's game winner in game 4, I honestly thought we had that series wrapped up.

Game 6 was a nightmare to watch. We had that game in the bag, but then Tim Thomas made Kwame Brown even more hated than he already was. :(

2010 NBA Finals, Game 7. Celtics were about 7 minutes away from a victory but couldnt get a damn rebound.

All 18 losses in a row from that losing streak.

2009 game where we got knocked off in the playoffs

In the chicago series almost every game went in to overtime...the games that we lost gave us a huge scare

And this season I went to game and we (celtics) played the wizards...at one point we were down by 30 (to the ****in wizards!) that game was just.....:facepalm:

Well, I'm gonna be a homer on this one, but game 7 in the first round of the playoffs at Toyota Center where the Rockets LOST to the Jazz in 2007. I mean you couldn't be more disappointed than that. A healthy T-Mac, a healthy Yao, imagine if they would have won that game. But then again with JVG as coach, I'm sure we would have gotten swept in the second round by an underdog.

I have a couple:

This year vs. LAL.

Calderon tries to save the ball, but an LA fan catches it :pity: Then Kobe gets the game winning shot, and I thought we had a timout left, but we didn't.

This year vs. GS.

1 game away from the playoffs, and Bosh misses the game winning layup.

And that was Bosh's last moment as a Raptor, unless you want to count Jamison's elbow hitting Bosh's face.

And ofcourse...VC missing the game winner vs. PHI. Just one shot away from the ECF :sigh:

Since I'm still sorta a noob Jazz fan, there really arent many. At a push I'd say the game 4 loss to the Spurs in the 2007 WCF at home. Losing at home is always tough to take, and that one killed our hopes. The only other game I can think of is game 6 against the lakers in 08 at home. All he others would be regular season games.

Game 7 of the 2004-2005 ECF when the Heat lost to the Pistons because Wade was injured. The Heat were up 3-2, but Wade missed game 6 and wasn't himself in game 7 so the Pistons took the series and went on to the finals. The Heat had a better team in 2004-2005 than they did the next year when they won the championship so it was really disappointing.

i knew exactly what happened, u didn't mention the whole situation, u just mentioned the missed shot, and really how jet lagged can someone get on a flight from north carolina to philly, they fly and play on the same day on many occasions...its just more vince carter hate from raptors fan, and its the ignorance of those fans that made me an ex raptor fan!!

although i do not like that he gave up on the team at the end, but the team and the fans gave up on him long before he gave up on them, and that game was just the start of that!
