    Paul George "I gotta get the last shot"

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/1...land-cavaliers


    "I talked to CJ about it," George said following the team's 109-108 loss. "In situations like that, I gotta get the last shot. I was asking for it. CJ took it upon himself."
    Cleveland's LeBron James, who was the second man on the double-team that forced George to give up the ball, said he thinks the Pacers star made the right basketball decision.
    "I can only speak for myself. When you're doubling me, I'm giving it up. That's me," James said. "I don't know how everybody else feels about that, but if you get a double, I think we all know math in here: There's two guys on the ball, and that means there's a 4-on-3. You have your numbers. So if you're the best player on the floor, that doesn't mean you have to take the shot. I think he made the right play, and you live with the results."

    That's just George being butt hurt. People say stuff like that after a stinging loss and weak people gonna put the blame somewhere else.

    They should of started attacking early to force Cleveland to show their hand defensively. Once LeBron came for the double their wasn't ample time to get the ball back. Cleveland played that well forcing the double late in the clock. Indiana gambled for a later shot.

    There was an infographic on television showing how George is 0-15 in the last 20 seconds with the game on the line. I'm not sure he's gotta get the last shot.

    He has gotta get the last shot but man being doubled without attacking makes it really hard not to give it up in that situation. George is becoming is becoming a ***** too.

    Do you guys not think he knows hes 0-15? These players know these things, its about THEM. In spite of that, you need this mentality to be a top player.

    You think Paul George cares if he's been 0 for 20? He needs to have it, he needs to have that mentality.

    Nicely stated.

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    I hate this I want the best shot available. I remember when people tried to kill LeBron for making the right play.

    Because he's dribbles out the clock and tries to beat his man in iso, even though he's a really poor ballhandler for being a top wing player.

    That's the problem. He's right and everyone else is wrong. He needs to understand that what he is doing is NOT WORKING.

    Well, he just gave the Cavs the defensive map the rest of the series, as long as you double George, he'll be taking the last couple shots. The other team mates won't be shooting and will pass it back to him.

    Sag on the other players, double George and the game is won.

    Paul George is a goner if the Pacers lose this series. They gonna trade him before he bolts.
    CJ got a great shot, faked out Jefferson. Just fell short. Better than some volley by George.
    Whatever happened to running a solid play. Hmm, maybe they should've kept Coach Vogel.

    he gave the ball up and it was the right play. By the time he got free there was under 4 secs left and he was 5 feet behind the arc. Miles got off a good shot anyway, at least good enough.
