    Regardless, sometimes it's just better to take the available shot
    100% disagree... u didn't even need to score there.. u can miss. u just need to make sure u have the last shot.. and they foul and u make ur freethrows

    It's not hero ball when you're taking the right shot. He took an open jumper when the D was sticking to Gay and Demar, and Howard hanging back defending the paint. Then he took the available drive that had him going right to the middle to his strong hand, where yeah it's Howard, but Lowry is good at initiating/selling contact and finishing random shots over guys.

    I believe you play the game, not the clock. If you're too worried about gettign the shot at the right time in the clock, there's a good chance you won't end up getting the shot you want, especially for a team that doesn't have the best history of execution.

    I mean, they gave that shot, would you rather he forces a pass that turns to a TO? He made the decision he thought was the best available in a close game.

    like I said we didn't have to score.. we just had to waste enough time so that when we got the ball back they would have to foul... simple as that..

    Why are they giving credit to D'Antoni? I can be a coach in crunch time. Give it to kobe...

    Again though, they were sticking to the other guys and Howard was guarding teh paint. Lowry would have had to force another play. THAT would have been hero ball and more likely to result in a mistake. I understand your logic, but risk has to be taken into account.

    OT. We don't seem to do so well this year in OT.

    I watched the play.. all he had to do was drive or hold the ball 3 or 4 more seconds which was totally possible
