    Default Irving's 3 hurt more than Linsanity's 3 against us.

    What a bad case of deja vu. You know their can shoot and dribble. He challenges Bryant to a one on one and is full of all the confidence in the world, and you don't put pressure from the inbound? Stupid. Very stupid.

    i saw that coming from a mile away. Dwane Casey making retard decisions again. And AA needs to learn some clock management skills

    nah... it felt a like a mosquito bite to me. Grabbed a beer a few minutes later and went on with my life.

    The Carter dagger, was a lot more personal.

    Like I said in the game thread, I've almost become immune to these late-game letdowns and collapses.

    Same here. Casey pissed me off big time. What the heck is he doing?

    Why are you guys so pissed off at Anderson. He was playing good defense. Had Anderson played to tight at a metre away from the 3 point line, Irving would've drove it down his throat. Anderson respected the Irving drive, and had Irving missed that 3, it would've looked like the stupidest shot. Casey planned for the OT, Scott played for the win. No one got out-coached that last possession, Anderson didn't play bad defense.

    Anderson is one of our best on-ball defenders too...

    Well, honestly, it was the offense. You can only play defense for so long when the offense doesn't start falling. Calderon continuously ran the pick-&-roll which Cleveland started to play for, and Calderon never adjusted. Plus, bad turnovers in the 4th quarter, and bad shot selection. We lived and died by the 3 last night.

    Dude AA is a good defender but he made a stupid decision. He should've realized that irving was going to pull up for the 3 and closed him out and let him drive into traffic. They would've been fucked in OT had he scored the 2 points and we would've won, this one was on Casey and AA i'm sorry.

    better yet, we should have fouled and went for another DeRozan game winner infront of the home crowd.

    what makes u think we would have won in OT? I believe we are 1-4 in OT games this year.. and they clearly had the momentum as they outscored us 33-23 in the final quarter

    Cuz they played a huge game the night before. They'd be gassed and we'd have the upper hand

    I doubt it. We just played like shit in the fourth and Kyle Lowry played like complete garbage. I think we would've won in OT

    You never wanna go into OT as a road team off a back to back. Hell if we fouled and let them tie, we could've iced the game on another game winner. But whatever, we'll get em back

    fouling when ur up by 2 with 12 seconds left is never something any NBA coach would ever do unless they had a foul to give.. ur the second person ive heard say that on here and its just not a good idea.. it was a very unlikely shot he made.. props to him and move on.. I agree AA could have picked him up earlier but putting him on the line in that situation is just ludacris
