    I agree with you. This is an issue I have with DC; he at times seems to give total freedom to either Lowry or Derozan to create a shot out of a timeout.

    Derozan excels in the catch and shoot, whilst Lowry is almost guaranteed to knock down his 3 off his pin down screen 3 from the top right.

    With 6 seconds, I would have ran the same play that they ran in Sacramento in which Lowry got called for the Offensive foul. That way, both Demar and Lowry touch the ball. Since the bigs are screening the lowry, Demar has the chance to drive, and if he doesn't have the lane, he knows exactly where to hit Lowry for the 3 ball.


    We didn't need the 3 ball in that case, so Lowry could have came off a screen inside the 3 point line and could have either hit Patterson for a jumper or gone for a floater.



    Totally agree about us not achieving as much as we did without Lowry.

    You know, if Ross goes to the corner to space the floor like he was supposed to, I can see us having a whole different conversation about the play. Food for thought.

    If DC can design a play on the correct side of the court, I can see us having a whole different conversation about the play
    DD has not only replaced Bargs on the scoring list, he's also replaced him as our new "come hell or high water" guy.

    Thats what many of the players mentioned in their post-game interviews.

    Ambidextrous and I were discussing other potential play calls that Dwayne Casey could have made. If you see my post prior to the one you quoted, you would see that I was happy with the play call and what Lowry tried to do.

    Like Mack11 just said, there could have been a different outcome with a different play call as well. Im just not sure that the one DC did call actually put our guys in the best chance to succeed. We needed ball movement and screens, not iso, especially because we all knew that Lowry was going to get the double team like he did all series.

    LOL!! Lowry thought he was Leonidas from 300. This is SPARTAAA F*** outta here smhhh.. Good season but really?? Kyle needs to become a better leader and find other ways to win instead of trying to be such a hero. Great season but this play really pissed me off. We had 6.2 seconds and we end up with this??
    Personally, I didn't have a problem with that attempt. Despite being forced, it almost worked. Game of inches.

    Considering Ross' trembling legs all series, I'm not so sure I would've wanted him taking the final shot.

    Interesting. Didn't catch the play flipping fiasco.

    Then again, it's not like Lowry going left is truly a "weakness". But Casey did say in the post-game presser that Ross was supposed to be in the corner. I guess the moment got the better of him where he was caught spectating.

    Shoulda would coulda.

    That said, imagine if Ross were in the corner and Anderson left him open to help. How killer would it have been to give Ross a chance to redeem the series by hitting the series-winning shot. I would have wet my pants.

    All going according to plan. Two games against the Heat, down 2-0. It takes the sting out of losing a little bit knowing that our season ended in a heroic game 7 defeat rather than with a whimper at the feet of the Heat. And, our team didn't cost $180 million to do that.

    Ross has been banished to the corner since about game 3 or so and the Nets have been pretty much leaving him open to double or triple team Lowry and DD. I mean does anybody really think there is any f**in way that Lowry passes it to Ross? Why start now?

    So, basically when Lowry drives to the hoop, Anderson slides over - it's a triple team and yes, the conversation is different, as in WTF play call was that?
