Carter, Harris Best in the "Clutch"

What defines a "clutch player"? says it's a player who performs during the "4th quarter or overtime, less than 5 minutes left, neither team ahead by more than 5 points". By that measure, Vince Carter is the Nets' most clutch. He's averaged 34.6 points per 48 minutes in those situations--23rd in the league. The most "clutch" point guards, in terms of assists in pressure situations? Steve Nash, Deron Williams and Devin Harris. In "clutch" +/-, Harris is tied for second overall.
