1.
In basketball, the player who comes in in late-game situations with a lead to protect. The closer prevents the other team from coming back by sinking clutch shots, drawing fouls, and making big plays on D. See Kobe Bryant
Man I thought for sure the Suns were gonna come back, but then Phil Jackson sent the closer back out and I knew we were done.
