1. March 8th @ LA Clippers

This is the easiest choice of the list. It was the second to last game of the season for the Lakers before the suspension. The magnitude of the game was high and Bradley showed up to play.

The Lakers and Clippers went back-and-forth all day. The Clippers jumped out to a first-half lead and then the Lakers clawed back and ultimately put the game away. Without Bradley, they most likely do not win this game.

A lot was on the line as the Lakers have a good lead for the one seed. But a lose here and the gap tightens and you give the Clippers momentum. Bradley was the key factor for the Lakers as he hit some big shots and showed poise and calmness.

On the day he was 9-of-17 from the field, which included 6-of-12 from the 3-point line. He finished the day with 24 points and did so on a 70.6 percent eFG% and TS%. His BPM also totaled out to an 8.5 for the day only behind LeBron and AD.

He didn’t have a better shooting game this day then his number three and number two games. But with what was on the line this game takes the top spot. Crucial moments on national television will earn that spot and this was the day for that.

Bradley still has a lot to prove if/when the season starts back up. His biggest games are yet to come. But he showed that he has the ability to show up and help this team in prime time spots.
