[In order to improve your gameplay during intense battles,] you just have to stay calm and clear minded. There isn’t much I can really say to help you in these situations but the dumb plays will go away with experience. Just keep scrimming and you will find yourself being able to clutch more.
I think what separates a good player from a good competitive player is the decision making and communication. You can be very good at the game and destroy people in 1v1's but you will not be able to win games without a brain. Also, two good players can be a duo but if they cannot talk to each other in tense situations they just won't succeed.
