May 19th 2023

Jayson Tatum has more shitty games than memorable games
May 19th 2023
46
just baffling disappearances.
May 19th 2023
52
he's afraid of contact. he afraid to get tough buckets. no dawg.
May 19th 2023
53
this gotta be one of the greatest coaching jobs in playoff history.
May 19th 2023
49
this just making the Sixers look worse.
May 19th 2023
50
And the Bucks slightly less bad
May 20th 2023
65
      Bucks were still a 1 seed
May 20th 2023

      Tatum is an avowed Kobestani
May 20th 2023
71
           I know but I mean who else? Kyrie? Dudes through out random…
May 20th 2023
74
                Could be referring to Book, too
May 20th 2023
81
                     Definitely Booker, Derozan as well.
May 22nd 2023

Gilbert Arenas had a great take on Jimmy and NBA players in general
May 20th 2023
70
      Miami out there having BF & Weight checks regularly

      Y’all think Lowry and Love are doing all that and running sprints?
May 20th 2023
75
           anyone who previously has won a chip...probably is ok
May 20th 2023
79
      Jimmy has a notoriously strong work ethic and does not hesitate to
May 20th 2023
73
           As much I like Jimmy, he still hasn’t won shit. It’s no different
May 20th 2023
83
                Jimmy, an alleged asshole, is far more accomplished than Embiid
May 20th 2023
86
I still think this series goes 7

Pathetic showing by the Celtics and their fake *super* stars
May 21st 2023

I heard one of them claim they were one of the best in the world
May 21st 2023

Lmao.
May 22nd 2023

Embarrassing and beyond frustrating.

they might really fire joe mazzulla after this season.
May 21st 2023
118
they should fire him. he's clearly lost the plot re: his team.
May 21st 2023
119
if they dont it's because they're too cheap to

Know what? I like our 0-3 better. And that…is perspective.
May 21st 2023

So, when this is done, tomorrow or Thursday....
May 22nd 2023
130
I think they move Jaylen for what I'm not sure
May 22nd 2023
133
I think you start by just running it back with a new coach.
May 22nd 2023
134
Kinda in this line
May 22nd 2023
135
Question for everyone that wants to fire Mazzulla
May 22nd 2023
142
      It's always easiest to fire the coach, esp. when the coach has been bad.
May 22nd 2023
145
      I don't think this is your typical coach situation at all, though.
May 24th 2023
162
Joe, Smart and Brown have to go
May 22nd 2023
137
      You just described Jaylen Brown
May 22nd 2023
138
           I agree
May 22nd 2023
139
                This is a hype Brown is not better than Tatum lol
May 24th 2023
160
I see players call bad timeouts over loose balls in the 2nd quarter
May 22nd 2023
131
Brad Stevens is already preparing his offer to Monty Williams, right?
May 22nd 2023
140
I could also see Nick Nurse there though. Because, you know.
May 22nd 2023
144
Boston's best players are drinking NyQuil. This is disappointing
May 22nd 2023

Don’t let us win one (c)Marcus Smart…

LOL!

May 24th 2023
171
Whatever happens tonight, I’m cool with it.
May 23rd 2023
147
Celtics really gonna give Jaylen Brown 295 for 5...for this???
May 23rd 2023
149
He was supposed to be the reliable one
May 23rd 2023
151
Right plus look at how many games he's missed
May 24th 2023
161
tatum gets hot and the celtics dont even look at his side of the court.
May 23rd 2023
150
miami playing sloppy.
May 23rd 2023
152
super sloppy, and Boston making their threes.
May 23rd 2023
153
      right. meanwhile miami is shooting 3s into their defenders hands.
May 23rd 2023

Cheryl's little brother gets more annoying year after year
May 23rd 2023

May 23rd 2023

May 24th 2023
164
its so dumb. they are 7 game series for a reason
May 24th 2023
168
      I was laughing at that. They’re just grasping for anything.
May 24th 2023
170
i think Miami wins Game 5.
May 24th 2023
166
Boston has been here before several times, so I wouldn’t
May 24th 2023
169
Gabe Vincent ruled out...
May 25th 2023
172
yikes
May 25th 2023
173
well if Miami still wins this looks even worse for Boston.
May 25th 2023
176
we're gonna be the first to lose a series after up 3-0 arent we..
May 25th 2023
174
man i hope not.
May 25th 2023
175
miami is 4-1 in boston in the last 2 postseasons per sportscenter.
May 25th 2023
177
looking like 4-2 lol.
May 25th 2023
178
miami looks like theyre just hoping for a bad game from boston.
May 25th 2023
179
this game is over which sucks unless you're a boston fan.
May 25th 2023
180
Hope so, but if there’s anything that the Celtics do well
May 25th 2023
182
      not tonight. breathe easy. it ain't happening.
May 25th 2023
183
this means someone owes Gabe Vincent a lot of money, right?
May 25th 2023
181
man....the 3 point shot is a motherfucker
May 25th 2023
184
maybe this only makes sense to be because i'm NOT an NBA player.
May 25th 2023
185
duncan robinson got a nice lil layup package.
May 25th 2023
186
Bam is not very good. He's way overrated.
May 25th 2023
187
marcus smart just be crying all game. play ball fam.
May 25th 2023
188
Just because you can bring the ball up the court, doesn’t
May 25th 2023
189
lowry washed.
May 25th 2023
190
if Miami loses this series i'mma need Bam to be fried.
May 25th 2023
191
miami might literally have butter on their fingers.
May 25th 2023
192
lol. weird but yeah, they've fumble so many balls (pause) tonight.
May 25th 2023
195
Boston is attacking the dribble because Miami doesn’t have
May 25th 2023
193
Free Highsmith!!!
May 25th 2023

kyle lowry should never start again.
May 25th 2023
196
Looking at their roster on basketball-reference
May 26th 2023
201
      said basically what you said, above....
May 26th 2023
203
I don't think the Celtics can pull off four in a row, but...
May 25th 2023
197
Mazulla’s job was never in question.
May 25th 2023
199
yep agreed,

May 27th 2023
209
jimmy and bam gotta step up mayne.
May 27th 2023
210
nobody on the bench is telling jimmy to go straight up?
May 27th 2023
211
why is Tatum sitting in the 4th q of a potential elimination game
May 27th 2023
212
Celtics usually don’t win close games.
May 27th 2023
213
This game stinks
May 27th 2023
214
No it doesn’t.
May 27th 2023
224
jimmy and bam just coming up short straight up.
May 27th 2023
215
a combined 7-35 from the field
May 27th 2023
220
Boston literally should give it to Tatum every possession...
May 27th 2023
216
I put them wolves on ya...you starting to look like bread (c)
May 27th 2023

May 27th 2023
223
How do you not run a double at Jimmy to get the ball out of his hands?
May 27th 2023
225
All for the privilege of getting skull fucked by Denver
May 27th 2023
226

May 27th 2023
241
Worst shot of the playoffs, that includes all Bron’s hero ball bricks
May 27th 2023
248
if Robinson makes those...it's a wrap and Miami is the finals.
May 27th 2023
256
      I doubt it, because they were up.
May 27th 2023
258
It’s over. Celtics by 15+ in game 7
May 27th 2023

Good. No one wants to see Miami in the finals.
May 27th 2023
245
i do. i definitely don't wanna see two teams i hate.
May 27th 2023
250
i def agree with this:
May 27th 2023
255
That was some horrible offense/defense by Boston down the stretch
May 27th 2023
246
ReeQ…what you got to say about Joe now?
May 27th 2023
254
i say 1 more game to go.

funny how Celts lose at home to a bunch of undrafted dudes and its little cause for concern.

If that's the case, why do you dislike the flick? It's been years since I saw it, and I have no desire to see it again, but I don't remember it necessarily being bad. I felt a bit let down given all the big names attacked, but it was a fairly pedestrian action movie from what I could remember.

I felt that it was the least inspired of the bunch, but it oddly received a good amount of critical acclaim. To me it was like a robot had watched a ton of Boston movies and wrote a script. Outside of Renner and Blake Lively, I didn’t think the performances were that great. Plus, the bad guy ends up winning and it’s played up as this sorta heartwarming moment. I didn’t find Affleck’s character to be redeemable enough to get away with that.

Where'd you hear/see/read about this? Practicing the craft is cool on its own for a variety of reasons, but going to route you mentioned is a bit odd.

I can't imagine a Michael Scott-like head coach who thinks, "Yes - The Town will get them pumped...let's watch it over and over."

If he's joking about that - then...I don't REALLY get the joke, but that's kinda funny.

If he's serious...what?

Now it makes perfect sense why Butler has been so dominant in the post-season.

Hope the rest of the league doesn't figure out the secret.

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

He makes the team en masse watch that movie over and over with him?

If it's the latter, that sounds like a colossal waste of time. I thought teams normally watch game film together or if the individuals are truly dedicated, one-on-one with an assistant coach to get an opponents tendencies.

Watching Ben Affleck stroke his ego for 2+ hours doesn't sounds like a prudent way to figure out how to beat Miami; but what do I know?

33. "WTF is going on with betting books??"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Last game, they had the Cs as 9 point favorites..I automatically knew
that was too many points. Heat won. I won

Now for this game they got them as 10 point favorites!

WTf. that’s clearly a fishy ass spread..

Either the first game was a book making error which rarely happens,
and today’s game is really going to be a blow out…or Vegas has malfunctioned.

I will not bet today’s game…just going to play fantasy.

My heart is telling me blowout or a big Cs win based on that spread…but NOPE

I’m chilling

Doesn’t this happen often? The idea being that most people think the favored team will bounce back/be more motivated after a surprise loss in Game 1, so the spread goes up for Game 2 to compensate for that betting action. It’s not rocket science.

66. "No. odds makers "
In response to Reply # 35
Sat May-20-23 03:17 AM by allStah

          

don’t work that way when you have a prolific team like the Heat,
and the history of how closely contested heat and Cs game are.

The previous game and history of the each team are always factored into the
spread …that shit was clearly not the case here


And my suspicion was correct again! And another Heat win, so that’s
two games where the Heat were practically double digit dogs..and won.

To get those spreads wrong by a seriously wide margin is not normal
book making…today’s game was a + 17 incorrect margin.

76. "Lol, odds makers don’t actually care about how the teams are playing"
In response to Reply # 66


  

          

They care about where the bets are being placed. The line was upped because more people would be interested in betting on the Celtics given that people were expecting a bounce back game from the Celtics. The actual result of the game is inconsequential. The line is just an attempt to even out betting on both sides so the bookies can guarantee that they make money. Again, not rocket science.

In response to Reply # 76

probability of a sports game. They highly base numbers on the form
and results of each team….

https://bookies.com/guides/how-bookmakers-create-odds

“These days, betting odds compiling is about number crunching and using databases of information to set the market. Traders will analyze dozens of sports to correctly assess the probability of every outcome. The vig is then applied to the price, which helps set the bookmaker’s price.

For instance, it might be as simple as analyzing the home team’s previous results compared to the away team’s form. By running the numbers through mathematical models, odds compilers can quickly set odds in real time.”

So in the case of the Heat/Celtics, the spreads were highly inaccurate and not even
close to the ending results, where as with the Lakers/Denver, they pretty much hit on the
head. The spread in that game was -5.5. Denver won by five

- History of the two teams playing against each other
- the current form of each team
- home and away
- injury report .

All of that is highly, highly factored in. If it were just based on falling trends and actions
of bettors, books would lose money.

It’s is rocket science and then some, highly elaborate calculations and systems
are used to created odds/spreads

And the Heat/Celtics games was highly erroneous ..because none of the two games came
close to the spread. Books do make errors and this is one of them.

In response to Reply # 77


  

          

"The aim of the bookmaker is to make a profit. And the better they are at calculating odds the more profit they can make long-term."

they're bookies, they're not predictors, and they're not pretending to be. they ultimately do not gaf how what the score is if they make money. and to do so, they ultimately respond to how bettors are reacting to these two teams:

"betting odds are changing all the time to reflect the weight of money moving around. If a rank underdog is suddenly attracting a lot of money, the betting site can move quickly to reduce the odds and protect their margin.

Conversely, if the favorite is attracting a lot more of the money, the odds on the underdog will likely increase."


>And the Heat/Celtics games was highly erroneous ..because none
>of the two games came
>close to the spread. Books do make errors and this is one of
>them.
>

no, they didn't make "errors", because they made money both games, which was the goal. If the Celtics or the Heat had won by 50, bookies wouldn't lose any sleep over it, they would simply factor that in to the next spread to even out the betting.

this is exhilarating to watch now, but man..everyone knows the hawks play-in game that we sleepwalked thru, but we had a game vs brooklyn nets late march, where they outscored us like 50-12 in 3rd quarter? ended up beating us by like 30. and we kinda sputtered our way thru those last reg season games & i was convinced they didnt have it this year...so yeah, i didn't see this shit coming **at all**

also nice to see Spo getting that "Pop-level"(?) respect during this run

They were in full force in the Wade/Shaq and then Heatles years but where did they all go? I swear they are the fan base everyone else says the Lakers or any other bandwagon team you can name are. So strange. This team is so entertaining.

It’s been like this since the 2020 team. Zero fanfare for a team that’s been to the finals and is 2 wins away from another.

I also said this team is entertaining as hell.

They’re also beating the Celtics, which I love.

Calm down.

you live in LA ill assume? (or nearby..or maybe minneapolis since your count is 17chips.. kidding)

so the lebron heat jerseys you saw during those years (and im sure they were all over LA because they were all over NYC when i was there those years), do you think those people are still heat fans today? (not angling for a smartass thing here..genuinely curious)

(Lol at Minneapolis tho)

Honestly, most of this is anecdotal - but I felt like you couldn’t escape Heat fans in like 06 and then 2011-2014. A friend is from Miami and she was a crazy Heat fan until LeBron left and then it felt like she didn’t give a shit (even when they made the finals!). The online presence seems wildly smaller too. It’s just kind of an observation - not in the way of empty seats for home games (I think that was a bit overblown).

It’s probably MOSTLY due to this place being a fraction of what it was even in the Heatles days, but I can’t call it. You’d definitely see waaaaaaaaay more Wade/Bron and perhaps even Bosh jerseys out in the world than I’ve personally seen of Jimmy jersets. It’s just strange. You’d think it being a major city and the team success would at least come across more out in the world, but that hasn’t been what I’ve seen. Hell, just today while out and about in Pasadena I saw Suns, Clippers, Lakers, and Sixers gear but no Miami…which is kinda unusual during the playoffs because so many people here are transplants, so all the team support usually comes out in the summer.

I could be off base, but it’s just strange is all

70. "Gilbert Arenas had a great take on Jimmy and NBA players in general"
In response to Reply # 63


  

          

I found this so fascinating
https://youtu.be/lcqYKEXUZeQ

In short, Pat Beverly said that half the players in the league don’t even like to ball and Gil agrees. Gil used the example of Jimmy Butler being labeled a malcontent when really he’s just a basketball obsessive who was in fragile environments previously. Guys like Towns and Ben Simmons whined incessantly and got coaches fired and still haven’t won anything, while Jimmy moved to Miami and became a postseason demon because Riley and Spo are as fanatical as he is.

Players’ passion and professionalism really does matter and define culture and it’s too often taken for granted. Like did you know in Miami guys who play less than 20 minutes run sprints after games? IN THE NBA?!? When I heard that my jaw hit the floor.

But then you see it working - you see how vicious Jimmy is, how hard they play on defense, that the team never gets tired.

In response to Reply # 70

speak his mind and call out others who he perceives aren’t giving their best. As a result, he’s perceived to be “difficult to manage” and it creates rifts between him and some of his teammates and coaches/ front office management. It’s why he was shipped out of Chicago and then Minnesota. It’s why he probably left Philly. He couldn’t take Brett Brown (and his coddling of Simmons) serious. By all accounts, Embid loved Jimmy and wanted him to stay. The fans loved him too.

I think there’s definitely some revisionist history going on with the Philly narrative. There was no guarantee Jimmy would resign and there were lots of rumors that Jimmy was looking elsewhere. Most analysts/writers gave Philly a high grade for the trade at the time. Think about it; There were lots of concerns at the time regarding Butler’s long term health and productivity due to his over-usage in Chicago. Philly got a young ascending, 2-way and potential solid player in Josh Richardson (on a cheap contract too). It also freed up cap space to sign Tobias Harris and Al Horford. In theory, those 3 guys *should* have provided more value than Butler. It’s easy to say now that Philly should’ve realized Simmons is a bum, but it would’ve been highly risky to part ways with him at the time - given his age, ability, and potential. Unfortunately for Philly, the trade went far worse than anyone could’ve predicted. I’m not going to defend the Sixers too much bc they’re one of the worst run franchises over the past 35 years, but it’s not like this was a horrible, head-scratching move at the time. In retrospect, yeah, it backfired spectacularly.

than Philly, a lot of spectacular performances, but at the end of the
no trophy.

Same thing with Spo after Lebron.

So even though Philly and Embid have not won anything, neither has Jimmy
after the trade

Shit Monty took the Suns from basement dwellers to the finals, and helped
Booker to make the leap to superstar…dude is now out of a job.

I like Spo and Jimmy, but at the end of the, they should get the same treatment as
other players and coaches for not bringing home the prize.

NBA finals, conference finals…no ring

And again I like Jimmy and Spo ..but let’s not go from underrating them to overrating
them.

Jimmy’s resume is probably better than Tatum’s too. Same or better than Book.

So what’s the difference? Not quitting in must win games, not getting blown out, always showing up in the crunch (COUGH TATUM COUGH)

We’ve seen this Cs team constantly put themselves in this type of situation, even
when they were under Udoka.

I think the pressure shifts a little bit, because now the perception is that the Heat will
win this series…and we know what the Celtics did last year.

Can the Heat step on the Cs neck and close the show? Or will the Cs
make another comeback in a series

We shall see

I thought it was unlikely the Celts were going to re-sign him in the off-season anyway, and that probably sealed it. Great locker room presence and he & Tatum have a great friendship, but he went from making the most of the minutes he got to trying to box out of his weight class REAL quick. Once you saw Jimmy’s smile, you knew what was gonna happen next.

Anyways, this sucks… I wouldn’t put it past this team to turn it on on the road and win the series, but I can’t even bring myself to get excited about it. This team has been beyond frustrating the last few weeks. The second I think they’re out of their funk, they get right back in it.

I love what I see from him down the stretch in games. Most of his stuff looks inevitable. IE: when he starts working people in what what is now considered no man's land (not in the paint, not behind 3), it just seems like a dude who is about to get a good shot almost certainly. And he usually does. It is wonderful to watch..especially when he gets hot and stays that way.

Genuinely feels like it could be a finals for real basketball fans. In the way that the Spurs/Pistons in 05 was an all time classic, I think Denver/Miami has such great possibility to be a back and forth series with superstars doing big shit. It should be really fun to watch for anyone who enjoys the game.

i remember when the playoffs started, i heard multiple journalist with podcasts question if he really had the coaching accumen to adjust in the playoffs when things got rough.

kinda looks like the answer to that question is "no."

especially with a couple good coaches available, seems like his time will end in the next game or two.

in what ways do the Celtics reconstruct this team? From coaching to roster. I don't think this is a blowup situation, but you clearly can't run THIS squad back out there, next year. Does Jaylen go somewhere and get his own situation? Last run for Big Al...?

In response to Reply # 130


          

Maybe some minor roster tweaks here or there as necessary. Escalate from there if things aren't looking good as the season progresses. Tatum/Brown is a great duo and still pretty young. I would not hit eject on that any time soon if I didn't have to.

I honestly think a better coached version of this team is your current favorite to win it all (by far). Mazzulla has been fucking terrible.

Mazzulla’s gotta go. I think they’ll probably move on from Smart. Tatum is staying. We’ll see if they pay Brown after him making all nba or if he even wants to stay.

142. "Question for everyone that wants to fire Mazzulla"
In response to Reply # 134


  

          

Folks should keep in mind this will be the third new coach for the team within the last three years.

With that said, say the Celtics front office fires Mazzulla and brings in another head coach; what will the expectations be for the next head coach so they will keep their job? Will the next head coach have to get to the Finals? Win a championship?

To be clear, I'm not a Celtics fan, so I don't care that deeply, but I think setting a standard for a first year head coach to get fired in his first year for not getting to the Finals is a bit extreme and more of a restart than folks here realize. The dude clearly had his faults, but firing Mazzulla feels a bit extreme.

Clearly, I could be wrong in my assessment.

In response to Reply # 142


          

I'd have to think the standard for this roster as constructed is finals or bust from here on out.

In light of that, you just can't get swept/gentlemen's swept by an 8 seed in the conference finals. With the coach looking badly out of his depth the whole way through (and prior to that as well).

In response to Reply # 142


  

          

This is a 32 year old dude thrust into telling a bunch of 24-35 year olds how to do their jobs because his old boss got fired for *mysterious actions* while he himself is learning how to do the job he's got.


Being in the restaurant business, sometimes you find yourself with a GM by accident due to unforseen circumstances and the ship stays right because the ship was built well...but it also doesn't mean you can't take a step back after a year and recognize certain employees aren't performing the way you thought they were anymore, or something as vague as the "vibes" are off.


Even though they won Game 4 I can't believe this dude straight up said he lost the locker room. Even if they cleaned this series up and became the first team down 3-0 to ever win a series I'd still strongly consider firing him just for that.

Brown will fetch you the largest return and while I love him as a player I don’t think he is so good that you should be married to him

Tatum needs to learn how to play basketball other than hesi hesi sidestep 3. Gritty buckets, facilitating, moving off the ball. You 6’9 nigga act like it

I have a long standing Brown > Tatum agenda in my main hoops chat but at the end of the day Tatum is the guy y’all are invested in. There’s too much baggage with the relationship with Brown and the city/organization so I think it’s time to move on for both parties

Assuming Miami wins, I’d be happy to watch them go against Denver in the finals. Got no hate for either team. I would love to see Butler get one/Spoelstra get another, but would also like to see Murray/Jokic get one as well.

they took their foot off the gas defensively hoping that Boston would just lay down and they could coast to the sweep, and Boston ALMOST obliged.

they won't be lazy on defense again.

Jimmy had an off night too. that probably won't happen two games in a row.

be surprised if they were to win out.

Did it last year against the Bucks and against the Sixers this year.
They know how to play from behind.

I see them winning in Boston. Letting the guards play over the top instead of sending
the bigs up was a nice adjustment, and they still have two elite closers.

like, you see how the game is gonna go. there's no reversing it, and you just wanna pack it up go home and get ready for the next one, but you gotta sit there and play it out and just take the beating.

They should have been doing that from jump, but I guess they realized that
Vincent is their only true ball handler right now.

And why the Fock is Bam handling the rock??

In response to Reply # 196


  

          

and the Heat don't have much of a choice but to put Lowry in the starting rotation.

What I'm assuming Spolestra is going to have to do is have Butler be the defacto point shooting guard, initiate double teams off wing/paint penetration, and kick the ball out to the open man, and save the Heat from trying to have Lowry initiate the offense and just end up turning the ball over. Dude just doesn't have the speed to create his own shot, outside of getting switched onto a Boston big as result of Heat screens. As draining as that'll be for Butler, I don't think they have much of an alternative choice.

I'm surprised they didn't make that simple adjustment during last night's game.

...I think these wins are probably saving Mazzulla's job. Even if it's not clear whether he's actually that good of a coach or not. It also likely means that they won't trade Jaylen Brown (I doubt they would have received good value for him anyway).

He is Brad Steven’s guy, and there was/is nothing that is going
change that. That’s a narrative generated by the media.

He is going to be given ample time to coach Boston. That’s pretty much
a given.

i realize i don't have the benefit of their tech.

also, i don't know exactly what the rule is there: do they put the clock at when the foul literally happened, or when the whistle was blown?

either way, would have been nice for them to show all of us how they determined that there was 3.0 seconds.

In response to Reply # 266


          

push in the back at 3 seconds…but check it: the ONLY reason they got that time was Joe M’s challenge. The play automatically triggered a review to determine if it’s 2 or 3 shots for Jimmy, but if Joe doesn’t challenge, Boston doesn’t get ANY extra time….and as we saw, they needed EVERY bit of that 3 seconds.

280. "yeah the fucked up part is that wasn't a foul."
In response to Reply # 275


  

          

he put his hand on his back but didn't push him, cuz i saw that and saw multiple people talking about it online.

everyone knows the foul was actually him having his hands in Butler's wheelhouse when he raised up, thus fouling him on the arm(s). that happened at 2.7 (or less).

but, whatever.

Those dudes are entertaining, but no one should be watching them for honest and thoughtful insights...especially regarding little things the NBA does to put their thumb on the scales.


There was not 3 seconds on the clock.

262. "that first one, when he took the extra dribble cuz he was so open."
In response to Reply # 260


  

          

that's when he fucked up. i knew it wasn't going in once he did that.

in the postgame they were saying he shouldn't have taken the second but he was in rhythm for that one at least.

i mean, ultimately those didn't cost them the game. they could have salted it away but not boxing out actually cost them the W.

In response to Reply # 262


          

Spoelstra just said Struss did what he was supposed to do, and that was to
provide help defense to deny Tatum the ball.

an actual COACH, the ball didn’t bounce their way. They wanted to force them
into a long shot, which should have led to an EXPIRED clock. Either they
make the shot or they don’t …but time expires.

With 3 seconds left the focal point was to have everyone guarding the perimeter because
that essentially should have been the last shot. But the shot does a soft bounce out
of the rim ( because it almost went in), and goes straight to white for a quick put back.

They kept the Ball out of Tatum’s hands, Smart put up a desperate long shot, but the
unexpected happened in the end.

whether Struss did what he was "supposed to do" they didn't box out a guy who happened to burn them and win the game. and all i said was they didn't box a guy out. i never laid blame at Struss' feet. you just put those words in my mouth.

so, SOMEHOW, SOMEWHERE, they failed. coulda been Struss fault, coulda been someone elses. but, they didn't box out on the game winning put back, and you HAVE to guard for the offensive rebound better than that.

274. "Tim Legler said the Heat had two choices…"
In response to Reply # 270


          

press the inbounder to make it difficult for him to get a good pass in…or drop Struss down to help deny a pass to Tatum or Brown. They chose B and it worked for its intended purpose. It was just a miraculous play. That ball came off the rim so damn soft. Respectfully, I disagree that the Heat did anything wrong. They just got beat on a play that you couldn’t possibly account for.
