    Hopefully Tobias Harris is not serious for the 76ers.

Reminds me of so many of the analytical guys who think they are smarter then everyone else on what they wouldn't wouldn't pay people. This includes them getting super lucky with Brown and Tatum.
    Woah, woah, woah, slow down there, buddy. I thought Ainge was king? At least thatís what weíll hear the next time they go on a 6 game winning streak.

    Like at this point I don't even know who or what to blame.

    Were players situationally unaware of where in the game they were score wise?
    Were they coached to do this in this situation?
    Did analytics play into this where they passed up the layup?

    Like this is just mind blowingly bad.

    To be fair, it was 3 point guards and Porter on the break. Point guards aren't known for bein rim runners. Morris was so far behind in the play if he woulda been the cutter, he may not have even got a shot off in time. I think Porter coulda went to the basket but Campazza, him and Morris were all bunched pretty close together so Porter probably just trying to spread to create space. Even if Porter went on the block, I doubt he has a tip opportunity before time expires.

    It was 4 on 1 for a brief second but by the time Murray picked up his dribble, it was really 4 on 3. I get the optics of it suck, but I think the reality is vastly less stark. Everybody wanted to play hero.

    Itís not just bad optics what happened, itís bad basketball my man. There was time to pass and collect then shoot, thereís time to pass to the block and layup.

    A couple of guys this morning have placed the blame at the fact that this style fast break is run regularly through them game by most teams, so there isnít recognition to rim run.

    Part of the blame should go on Murray as well for picking up his dribble too early. He needs to keep pushing it. Wanna say 3 PGs and they donít normally rim run? Well with the ball on the fast break you are also taught to almost not pick up the dribble till you have to.

    Thereís no excuse or reasoning here. That was bad basketball.

    99% of the blame has to be on Porter for not running to the rim. Beal completely left the rim making that the easiest layup ever.

    Murray shoulda just took it to the rack, make it or draw the foul, heck, maybe both.

    As far as the cluster of Porter, Campazzo and Morris, they probably all thought the other was headed for the paint. Heck, Porter was in perfect position if Murray drives and kicks to the weak side too.

    The Heat are starting to play like the Heat from last year. Great defense in the 2nd quarter, thanks to some missed 3s by the Jazz.

    Gonna be hard to beat the Heat when they hit almost 50% of their 3s.

    Big time win for the Heat. 5 in a row. Dragic is back to being the Dragon. Jimmy Butler is back and healthy. All Heat need is Herro to get back.
