All of a sudden the basket is the size on an ocean, the crowd is on its feet and they world is at their finger tips, its the all too familiar heat checks. It's that moment that separates basketball from other sports, the sheer dominance of one player....that being said post you favorite heat checks!

As soon as I saw this thread LeBron's 16 came to mind... I never get tired of watching that. Absolutely incredible.

Yup, that's exactly what I thought too. Immediately.

Don't forget Jamal Crawford's back when he was in New York!

the one where dwayne wade looked at his hand as if it were on fire i believe it was in the playoffs vs the celtics.

Or his 63 in 3 quarters, outscoring an entire team.

Is that a heat check?

It's an incredible performance, but it's not what I would call a heat check..

A heat check is more of a run a player goes on when he literally can't miss. It might last 30 seconds, it might last 2 minutes, it might last a whole quarter. I think he had a quarter where he scored 30 in that game? 14 of his points in that quarter came from the free throw line, which makes it less impressive, and he was 7-14 from the field in that quarter, so I wouldn't call that a 'heat check'.

5:20 mark is where he looks at his hand after making 5 3pointers in a row in the 4th qtr if im not mistaken. Lebrons was sick but it was against the bucks and wade's was against a celtics team considered the best defense in the nba not to mention it was done in the playoffs.

i wanted to make this EXACT thread so many times because i watch that lebron clip so much its not even funny.. but i didnt because if there was any other heat checks this crazy then i would have watched it and gotten chills just like the lebron one..

and can we please not talk about kobe's 81 one.. that isnt a heat check... a heat check is when a player catches fire and starts shooting from any where and everywhere consec. i know kobe does that every game but cmon.. the carmelo 33 is kind of a heat check but not really.. perfect example of one is when the commentator said melo should just pull up from right there once he got down the court.. THATS a heat check..i really hope theres more that i dont know about..

the wde one was a performance.. the tmac and lebron one were heat checks..its like a 3 minute or less type thing.. wade doing that taunt was def exciting but if the game clock is going from 11:47 to 6:20 then thats not a heat check..

I'd say this trumps Wade's performance considering it was a pivotal game 5 at The Palace and paved the way for the Cavs making their first finals appearance in NBA history.. Scoring the teams last 25 points is incredible.

yes but all of his 3 pointers which were 5 of them came in the 4th quarter so that should count as a heat check.

i wouldnt say trump considering it took the 4th quarter and ot. I mentioned wade cause all 5 of his 3 pointers came in the 4th quarter. Either way T-mac's heat check is the GOAT close thread.

I've been bashing Kobe a lot this year, but he's had a bunch of these:

Kobe's 17 straight against the Celts in the Finals was impressive. Even the Garden on his last shot just gasped.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNQPFCjBCIg

Also his 4th quarter vs. Tmac was absolutely ridiculous...

Vs. the Suns in the WCF?

Kobe's 42 in the first half against the Wizards (Jordan)

He made 11 straight fgs:

I thought you were saying Wade's performance was better, I understand what you're saying now.. Yeah, I'd agree.

LeBron's Bucks heat check is still my favorite of all time.

This is a great thread. Personally the greatest "heat check" moment for me was game 1 of the 92 finals where Jordan hit six threes in the first half and does the "shrug." Never forget watching that with my father.

He scored 35 points in the half and sat out a good amount of the half. At least 5-7 minutes from what I can remember. He went on to score 39 points and 11 assits in only 34 total minutes.

8pts in 9seconds by Reggie was the most outstanding one for me... 99-105 against the Knicks, in Indianapolis; "Miller for 3, and he got it! And a steal! Miller retreats to the 3pt line, AND HE HITS AGAIN!!!" and the crowd goes wild.

None of the ones posted are heat checks except for Lebron and Tmac and Millsap. Everyone else is posting stuff that happened over an entire game and was cut into a 3 minute video.

I think it's hard to judge when videos are cut down, but I do agree with you. I think the Melo one kinda counts, because he scored 33 in a quarter and you hear the commentator say "shoot it Melo! Pull up right there!", that's a heat check.

If you watch from around 8:30 in this clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN9rs6gchwc&feature=relmfu) and the rest of this clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUtwO2Nxyo8&feature=relmfu), I think it's fair to say that's a heat check. He went 8-9 and scored like 19 points in a span of 6 minutes.

I see you guys debating a lot over what is a heat check. it really isn't a great performance its just a crazy span where a player just goes berserk, fts aren't really involved

this tayshaun prince 3 barrage is the perfect example of a heat check, along with the lebron i had in the first post and Tmacs

Kobe's NBA record 12 3 pters against the Seattle Sonics in a 2003 game.

Kobe against MJ of the Wizards when he dropped 55. He went 8-10 from 3 pt range and 42 pts in the first half.
