Are there "clutch" players or performances in sports?

At various points he dipped below 50%. Is that clutch or is that pretty darn consistent?
Making plays under pressure are important, but that is always part of sports.
The reality is great players are given the opportunity to make big plays and because they are great, they make them at a relatively high rate.
Whether people remember the good or the bad is up to them.
Jerry Rice was pretty good in non pressure situations too.
