For Vince his best playoff run had to have been in 2001. They took it to 7 games against philly who would go on to the finals that year. He also dropped 50 in one of those games against philly

WAIT!
15 9 ASSIST 6 BOARDS 4 TURNOVERS, but he also only shot 4-13 and 1-3 from deep.
That's as bad as it gets for Kidd

That was against Boston in 2003 and it lead to a win

Amare averaged 37 ppg in a 6 game playoff series against Tim Duncan in his prime. Obviously in a losing effort but thats a hell of an accomplishment.

Yea Amares performance was legendary, the Spurs gameplan was to let Amare beat them tho, and Amare did everything he could to do so, with a vengeance, on one end at least.

Which game was his best, I cant recall how many they won tho

Melo's 42 point game against the Celtics basically playing 1 on 5 was pretty sweet, even though they lost.

Did he have his worst game in that very series?

Dwight beasting for 40pts to eliminate Lebron's Cavs and get to the Finals would be his best moment.

Dwight losing in the first round to one of his best friends (JSmoove) after setting a record with the whooping they gave that same team the season prior, would probably be his worst moment.

Dwight against the Cavs and KD vs Denver come to mind. Lebron against Detroit feels forever ago and ill throw in Horry's game 5 in 05 finals
