Subject : 5 for 5 from the free-throw line
Thanks to ridiculous data compiled by Harvard Sports in 2011, we know Jordan's usage percentage on Tune Squad from the film. Basketball Reference defines usage percentage as "an estimate of the percentage of team plays used by a player while he was on the floor."Jordan needed to take over so much because his teammates were trash. He had Bill Murray, Stan Podolak (Newman from "Seinfeld") and Sniffles The Mouse (height was a major disadvantage) to name a few. Sure, he had Lola and Bugs Bunny, but how good were they really?

So it's pretty telling that the Thunder needed Westbrook more than the Tune Squad roster needed Jordan, even if we are comparing real life to a movie roster. As noted by MMOgo Stats & Info, in the six minutes Westbrook sat in Game 5, the Rockets outscored the Thunder 27-9.Saying Westbrook needs help is like beating a dead horse at this point, but it's true. The fact he averaged a triple double (37.4 points, 11.6 rebounds, 10.8 assists) in this series and his team only won one game is very telling.

Al Horford couldn't believe his luck. With 7:56 to play in the fourth quarter and the Celtics holding to a four-point lead in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference opening round, Horford was trying to keep up with Bulls center Robin Lopez out near halfcourt as Jimmy Butler attempted to inbound the ball. Butler made the pass to Lopez just as Lopez turned to cut inside, and the ball bounced innocently past the winking Celtics leprechaun logo.Horford thought, "Don't screw this up."He collected the ball just beyond the 3-point line, took one dribble and swept in for a dunk ahead of Butler's pursuit.

The locals erupted and momentum, which had been trickling toward Boston, rapidly swung the Celtics' way. Horford's dunk was part of a six-minute, 20-4 run that transformed a one-point deficit into a 15-point lead, which the Celtics were able to carry to a 108-97 win and a 3-2 series advantage Wednesday night."It was great," Horford said.

"I took advantage. I made sure I gathered myself and it was awesome, I feel like it was a big lift for us."It was a highlight for Horford in a game that ranks among his best as a Celtic: 21 points on 7-for-11 shooting, 5 for 5 from the free-throw line, nine assists and seven rebounds. It was also an exclamation point to a Horford postseason revival in the Celtics' last three wins, following the wave of FIFA Coins 18 criticism that dogged him after Boston lost the first two games of the series.It's a funny thing about NBA roster moves. For years, fans in Boston lamented the fact the team had been unable to lure top-tier free agents. They got one when the Celtics signed Horford, an All-Star for the Hawks last year, to a max $113 million contract. But many of those fans spent the year largely unimpressed with their big prize.
