BiiiigChips,

You're wrong. Sure they are likely to lose anyway, but fouling is 100% the correct play.

I used the picture once for something and just happened to think of it along with the Usual Suspects quote.

Thanks for both the kudos and the "**** you." Hey, I feel for Cleveland fans. The only thing I as a Milwaukee fan have over Cleveland fans is the Packers Super Bowl from almost 15 years ago.

They should have been fouling at 1:14. And this isn't a regular season game. You have nothing to lose, you foul foul foul foul foul.

Not really sure what he did wrong...Danny Ferry brought in Jamison and Shaq which disrupted a good team from a year ago. Other than not fouling at the end there it was the players' poor performance that cost them this game.

Maybe a little bit more but i just noticed it at :45 when the celtics got another offensive rebound and pulled it out. Then mike breen started talking about. There was 45-50 seconds left when that happenned.

He didn't have his players foul down 9 with 1:14 left in an elimination game. This is 100% the coach's decision and it's 100% incorrect.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

who cares? even if you have a 0.001% chance that the Celtics go 0-8 from line, you steal an inbounds pass and you go 5-5 on catch and shoot threes, it's better than the 0% chance you get by standing around.

Agreed but I have heard a lot of hate about Mike Brown before. Other than the last minute of tonight's game what was it that he did so wrong?

Especially with the way some of the Celts were missing FTs. It was unbelievably baffling.

last time i got excited for a cleveland sports team was the 95 and 97 indians. i have a feeling we're going to have to wait even longer for something interesting to happen now.

How about when they were down 9 with 1:20 left and the ball in Rondo's hands?

Does that make sense if you watch a lot of the NBA? Did you even watch the game with this .45 second nonsense?

How am I wrong when 99.9% of the time when a NBA team is down by 9 or more with less than a minute left they don't foul. What happened tonight is super standard for NBA games that's all i'm saying. It happens all the time and I've never heard anyone on this board outraged about it before.

I'm not a huge basketball fan and I admittedly don't follow NBA much during the regular season so I don't have any prior hatred for him other than that mind-numbingly ******ed decision.
