2. 5-point swing off Naz Reid's putback slam to Ant's Dagger 3

Two words. Naz Reid. The Sixth Man of the Year was the sparkplug off the bench the Wolves needed all series. Reid shifted the game's flow with his impact in the fourth quarter. He had a smooth side step lay early in the fourth, then was subbed back in later, spelling Town's and his five fouls with stifling defense against Jokic, sending his shot back twice.

But perhaps the game's deciding sequence was triggered by Reid skying in the lane for a putback slam. The highlight sequence continued as Mike Conley came up with a steal finding Reid, who made a great pass to a wide-open Edwards. The high-flying guard would knock down the corner triple to give the Wolves a double-digit lead.
