Never in my wildest dreams?! You have Durant and Irving and you let a scrub take every meaningful shot?!

How is that possible. Once, I understand. But 2 or 3 times with the game in the balance. confused

Surprisingly they were both good shots that he was making all night. not the worst options possible but I wanted Kyrie to get the ball. Dude was go hard in the 2nd half then KD decided to not pass to him anymore

Who gave that a-hole permission to shoot? I have watched basketball for 30 years and never seen a scrub shoot shots so brazenly without even looking for Durant. Just shot it as soon as he touched it. Unbelievable.

You are 19. Stuff like this doesn’t happen. Scrubs don’t take those shots whether they are making them or not, total anomaly.

Watching that inbound play it looked like it was drawn up for brown to get the ball...why?

I love how you bring up my age always. Anyways yes your right but I think the thing about Brown is that he is the 3rd most confident guy on the court since Harris and Griffin always shy away in big moments. Again, kyrie needed the ball more late.

Exactly. Either it was awful coaching or…

You have to wonder. Both the NBA and the books won tonight. peace_5

It was a broken play off the inbounds. That being said, Brown had plenty time to find KD or Kyrie but made the wrong decision (nerves?) and put his head down.

You know nothing John Snow. Scrubs don’t take multiple meaningful shots at the end of games. Decades of NBA playoff history says you are dead wrong. This is not the regular season. peace_5

It did happen once, which tells you what an anomaly it is. Ironically, it was a Durant team. Reggie Jackson took over in a must win game 4 against the Grizz. But the only reason for that was Durant and Westbrook were chocking and wanted no part of the ball. Look it up. Educate your young mind. peace_5

The execution of the nets last inbound play is unexcusable...thats on Nash for not getting KD or Kyrie the ball on the first touch...D'Antoni was busy looking up homes in Portland during the last 2 minutes of the game

Agreed. In the playoffs it always goes to the best player or the best shooter. I would've drawn up a shooting play for Harris before Brown. But Durant should be the go 2 guy. He has the ability to shoot, the length, and can get by defenders.

I was just as surprised watching it live.  Out of a time out nonetheless. 2 killers and they went with the scrub. Not sure who’s to blame, Nash? or did the play fall apart. Crazy sequence

@ActionMagnet

 It was a broken play. The play was never drawn up for Brown.

Play of the game was Holiday taking matters into his own hands late, driving ball to rim for a layup.

Inexcusable. They should have took a timeout after that inbounds pass but there was way too much time for Brown to try to take matters in to his own hands. Smh

Youth is the most valuable commodity on the planet. Jeff Bezo would pay 100 billion dollars to be 19 again, I promise you.
