2012 NBA Playoffs: Ranking The Best Individual Playoff Performances After Day Thirty Seven

Day Thirty Seven of the 2012 postseason is already in the books. The one game schedule continued with Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals with the Celtics playing the Heat in Boston, a match the visiting team won. This playoff day was marked by one legendary performance.

Who ranks on the top? Without any further ado, let's start.

P.S  I'm sorry for being behind in this sort of "project". I'll make up for that. Now, let's go.


2. Rajon Rondo
In a night where non of his teammates played to their normal standards, Boston's point guard Rajon Rondo seemed to be left all alone and to try to beat the Heat by himself. Despite his excellence and contributions in the course of Game Six of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals, he and his Celtics failed versus the visiting team.

Nonetheless, Rondo played quite well throughout the game. He was aggressive, made the right call and was excellent on both sides of the court. Although he had an untypical day of being careless with the ball, he still scored in bunches, distributed the rock nicely and was good defensively.

The stats back that up. He poured in 21 points, dished out 10 assists, pulled down four boards, recorded three steals, committed seven turnovers, shot 8-14 from the field and 5-7 from the stripe in 41 minutes of action. Stat wise, it wasn't a bad performance.




1.LeBron James
On Saturday night, No.6 from the visiting Miami Heat came in Boston Garden with huge expectations and pressure that few, if not at all have faced before coming to Game Six of the 2012 Eastern Conference and showed up for a performance that will be spoken about in years to come. The name of that player is LeBron James.

For years, the league's MVP has been criticized for not showing killer instinct. Not anymore. He answered all of his critics with this legendary performance. He was focused, motivated and aggressive throughout the entire game. LeBron carried Miami offensively, entered in his rhythm from the start, scored in bunches, was excellent defensively, on the glass etc. In other words, he was brilliant everywhere.

The stats confirm that. James scored 45 points, grabbed 15 boards, dished out five assists, committed four turnovers, shot 19-26 from the field, 2-4 from three point land and 5-9 from the free throw line in 44 minutes of action. Stat and impact wise, it's nothing short of a legendary performance. It's easily No.1 .
