Oh god. Shitty rebounding and shitty clutch FT shooting.

Awful rebounding in the first half, awful execution down the stretch.

Why would they intentionally miss there? The only real hope was a steal. There wasn't enough time for a rebound, score, foul, and score again.

It's a bad sign when Courtney Lee is your leading rebounder

Avery Johnson..... what a fucking moron. Fouling up by 4? With 19 seconds left?

I don't think he grasps the concept of fouling when you are winning. You do it up by 3, with not much time left.

It's unorthodox, but I'm not convinced it is wrong.

When you are fouling 80%+ FT shooters I have a feeling it is. Just extending the game to create more possessions and giving your team a chance to miss FTs to make it a one possession game.

Why create a FT shooting contest when you don't have to and its already a 2 possession game?

Edit: I freely admit part of the reason I think its dumb is that Avery Johnson is a moron so I assume he isn't doing some genius unorthodox strategy of fouling no one else has thought of

Because you have the best FT shooter and a big head start?

A FT shooting contest takes out the biggest risk of the gap getting closed, which is threes.

No assurances Williams gets to shoot the FTs. But anyway, I'd be curious to see the win probability in that situation.

Fouling a bad FT shooter I can certainly see, but fouling Pierce or Terry just seems like an easy way to give the Celtics a chance at having the ball with a shot to tie.

Terrible on the boards and terrible execution in the last five minutes. Refs didn't help but the C's can blame themselves for this loss.

Didn't the announcer mention that the Nets were out of time outs...and that Avery was fouling so he could set up his team?
