Seattle’s (OKC) Top 5 NBA Finals Moments

By 06.12.12

1. DENNIS JOHNSON’S CLOSING BLOCK IN GAME 4, 1979
Johnson is most known for his layup off a Larry Bird steal when he played for Boston. You know the play, but that came after this one that changed a franchise’s course. That was after his huge block on Dennis Grevey with four seconds left in 1979. (Note: This wasn’t the only time he dominated Grevey. In 1978’s Finals Game 3, Johnson held Grevey to 1-of-14 shooting and blocked seven shots.) The 114-112 win in Game 4 gave Seattle a 3-1 lead. The Supersonics would go on to win in five games.

That play led to this immortal call in Sonics/Thunder history.
