No run-n-gun and no superstar-centered teams made late runs except for the Cavs. Here is the playoff hardware:

Most Memorable Event - Derek Fisher enters the Utah arena half way through the 3rd quarter to a standing ovation and immediately is sent into the game by Jerry Sloan. He flew home from serious eye surgery of his daughter.
