    Which one do you choose?

    Horry's dunk was in 4th Q iirc, in detroit, that game 5 I believe?

    I pick the Horry dunk but it's so close lol

    Manu's dunk was absolutely sensational, but it didn't really change much in terms of the series; Horry's dunk was less athletic and emphatic, but might have ultimately been series-changing.

    Horry. The Spurs were in a very tight game and it would be devastating to go back home down 3-2 with two blown out (game 3,4) and one close game (game 5).

    Horry's dunk was awesome and hilarious at the same time. I loved how he grimaced after he threw it down. Manu's dunk was impressive because I wasn't expecting a vintage Manu dunk at this point. Although, Horry's dunk was pretty unexpected also.

    Both made me jump out from my seat. Both made me yell at the tv. Both were sensational, but due to the cir stances of when Horry did his dunk, his was bigger.

    Horry's dunk was one of the best Spurs dunks in a tight game I have ever seen. He had one of the all time great second half performances in a Finals game in the past 25 years. I remember him clutching his shoulder after that dunk and worrying that he may have hurt himself.

    That dunk was awfully close to being a charge too

    Horry. I saw that and didn't think he would make it at first but then just barely got it in. And yes, almost a charge.

    Rob's is easily the greatest dunk in franchise history.

    Here is the end of Game 5 + OT in 2005 vs Detroit. Horry's drunk is @ 5:50 in the 3rd part.

    It's funny, looking at it now, to see that this game had all the drama that was going to be so important for the Spurs in the future:
    @ Tim clutch FT shooting and clutch clumsy hands
    @ Manu clutch passing to the opposing team or the public
    @ Parker clutch disappearing act

    Yup.

    It shifted an entire series against our toughest Finals opponent to date tbh.

    Horry's.

    Manu's was amazing but I'd also put Kawhi's putback ahead of it.

    Horry. It really felt it changed the game and the series.
    Mugen - I'd argue that 13 Heat was our toughest Finals opponent as eel lost that series

    Thank goodness for Steve Javie and his willingness to make the right call in a big moment, even if it went against the home team.

    Kawhi's putback is all flash but wasn't really that important in the course of the game. Manu's dunk just lit a fire under the Spurs ass just after being down by 16 in the first quarter.

    I'd put CoJo's dunk on Ibaka above Kawhi's putback in terms of significance.

    Nah man, both Miami teams were better than the 05 Pistons.

    Heading into 2013, I would have agreed but the Spurs literally gave that series away. They had to take it from Detroit, one of the most mentally tough teams I've ever seen tbh.

    I disagree completely, beating the Heat in game 4 is probably the toughest job they've ever done, definitely in their 6 finals, game 5 2005 tied 2-2 on the road is the only thing even close. To beat a team at home with their backs up against the wall like that is an absurd task. Closing quarters and especially the half are the most important times of a game, the Spurs finally missed a shot, and instead of the Miami getting out in transition and getting a little momentum going into the half, Kawhi emphatically destroyed any hope of that.

    I was surprised by the Heat's quick start in game 5 but was never worried, their backs had already been broken.

    Cojo's dunk was hilarious but absurdly overrated. Games 5 and 6 they went to a lineup that completely minimized Ibaka's impact, they didn't start a parade of dunks on him.
