Pump fake, reverse to the other side of the ring and dunk the thing. Hard to believe someone who gave us the lead 20 seconds earlier had stagefright, what the hell was going on there, man!...
JJ actually had an excellent game, I'm not gonna bust on him for that. But it was such a critical and basic thing to get wrong.
This is why Phil Jackson is a good coach... He wont let you take Kobe or Jordan away from him. He finds a way to design a play when his team needs it most.
Shelden Williams is ten times the offensive player than Jeffries. Shawne Williams better than Walker. Anthony Carter smarter than Douglas. Find a way to get Carmelo a look. Dude is having a career night and you use him as a decoy?
What options does Carmelo have when he gets the ball at half court with three men charging him?
Then, how do we know foul right away?
Team has a low IQ b/c the coach only knows 1 thing: run and shoot 3s.
Just look at the last few possessions the first 2 games of the series. Look at well-prepard the Celtics were, how they executed, and then look at our team.
Sure, some of this has to do with our roster.... But if MD is such a smart off. coach... GET 'MELO a decent look in that spot please. Dont get him the ball in the corner at half court.
