This Kobe mentality of book at the end of games is garbage, he doesn't have those athletic abilities

Wtf is this? The last 5 minutes have been Booker or CP3 iso, and obviously none of it works. Gotta pass the ball

Soooo Ayton switches to the tiny man and then clears out, negating his defender (allowing a bigger man to take over), and booker tries playing hero ball. Terrible terrible decision making by Book and by Ayton for not demanding the ball in the post.

EJs said he should take that. I don't know..with Lowry on him why take a tough shot and not find someone an easier one.


CP been doing the same thing, just less possessions.

Its not efficient offense at any point in the game when your catches are behind the 3pt line and stationary. Its even less efficient in the last few minutes when defense tightens up.

We're gonna win this and it feels like a loss.
Happy we won but don't feel good about it at all.

Well, nice to win when you can shoot 25% from 3. No need to play ANY D on last possession.

Booker and CP3 (mainly Booker) have to better in these close games. I trust that they will.

The problem is, he was really well defended. Monty needs to have audibles setup. I trust Cam or Bridges and when the world knows Booker will get it, he can let someone else do something. This type of ball will fail in the playoffs

Really, really ugly finish to the game, but we'll definitely take it.

I have been an Ayton "hater", but todays game made me think. Which other center in the league plays as efficient as DA does?

We need to get our outside shooting mojo back and just stick with our offense down the stretch. We have a highly rated offense and can almost always get open shots if we move the ball. But knowing we like midrange and that it would be Booker or possibly Paul trying midrange shots and end it felt like their whole D was cheating inside which makes it tough to get anything to Ayton either...not that they'd trust him even though he's our highest % guy.
