Yeah that's fair. I really hated the turnaround fadeaway by Tatum with about a minute left, but I've hated every single one he's ever taken. The deep three I'm good with, he can make that. The final shot, I'm good with. He can make that, and the most important thing is that you leave zeroes on the clock with that possession.
I don’t know. Tie game....I’d want the high percentage shot there, not a long iso three.
Tatum off the dribble from three is about as high percentage as you can get outside of a layup. And a layup requires him to either beat his guy completely off the dribble and Miami to just be daydreaming in the paint or for there to be a pass in traffic which just introduces a higher probability of losing possession and letting Miami take the final shot.
