I don't know, he looked rather human to me in the last few minutes. Don't see why I would foul him with 3 seconds left to put him on the line to tie the game. That would seem rather dumb to me.3:38 Kyrie Irving makes 2-foot two point shot 92-87

lol definitely wouldn't put him on the line.. that is just a ridiculous idea.. man up and play D
For all the bullshit last year (which I fell for hook, line, and sinker by the way) about culture change, I am not seeing it. I still see a group of nice guys with, overall, average NBA talent struggling to get out of the bottom 10 in the league and losing games they shoulda/coulda/woulda won.
So in the very small picture it comes down to that shot but in the very big picture it coming down to that shot is the absolute problem.
This is a game where the starters for Cleveland were 2 rookies, 2 second year players, and a 25 year old signed to a 3 year/$10M contract.
Take other teams shit for prospects and picks.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
I don't know, never coached basketball, but it seems risky to me. Especially considering that the player you are shaking in your boots over, turned over the ball twice in the final two minutes.
I don't know if giving up two FT shots is the best thing to do.

Dribbles strikes again ....this one is on Casey mostly tho.....0.o
He could of easily made another one, if we coughed up the ball with 12 seconds left, or left time on the clock. The inbound pass has not exactly been money for us when sealing the deal.
If he makes a difficult shot like that, you have to give it him and move on. The difficulty on that make was quite high.
