    Coach drew up a beauty:
    Henderson drive into traffic,
    get mugged,
    hit the deck,
    toss no look kneeling pass to Ayton,
    DA misses last second 17 footer

    Orlando wins

    For those saying that was a bad play drawn up by Chauncey... we got what has been the most effective shot for us this season, a middy from DA.

    the lowest percentage shot in the game though...we should have been going for OT at the free throw line or the win at the line. Terrible decision whoever made it.

    The highest percentage shot on our team this season though.

    Refs tend to "let them play" at the end. I'd rather have an open shot than hope you get the call.

    Huh? Ayton is one of the best in that range. Couldn't have asked for anything better honestly.

    That was the EXACT play that needed to be drawn up. Perfect outcome.

    He can't put all his great sets on film until we're contending for a title next year.

    That was too close comfort. Time to sit Banton for the rest of the year.

    That last play he should not have dribbled into no mans land.

    Still got it to an open shooter who happens to be our rotation player with the highest field goal percentage, taking a huge amount of his shots from where he shot it.

    I forgot that Murray is a first round pick. But the entire bench is second rounder and undrafted.

    Brilliant coaching by Chauncey in that last timeout: Give the ball to Scoot; he’ll screw it up.

    Either Ayton sits the next two games or we just decide we're going to settle for fifth in the lotto. We can lose to both the Hornets and the Wizards but I don't think it happens if DA plays.

    If the Hornets lose to us, there's good reason to believe they can fall into a win in the last week of play, especially to the team that just beat them. The Celtics should have more than enough of a lead for home court throughout and they might rest their rotation guys the last couple of games. San Antonio has games against the Grizz and Pistons both of which I would favor the Spurs in.

    We could be looking at the 3rd spot in the lotto either by ourselves or sharing it with one or two other teams.

    I wonder if Chauncey and the players really give a shit if we get the 4th pick? Really?
    I bet they show if so, against the hornets.
    I know how fans mostly feel.

    special edition NBA playbook:
    PG drives into paint against wall of dudes
    PG spins around on pivot foot 3 times
    Everyone stand and watch PG in trouble
    Ball gets poked loose
    PG falls on ball
    Scrum for ball ensues
    PG passes from deck to open player
    Open player takes shot
