Two recent possessions where Marcus drove and basically just threw it to the Cavs. I think he could use a day off (or two)

I can’t imagine the pressure PP is putting on himself when he gets to play. I’m sure that he is overthinking and putting extra importance on every shot with the hope it will lead to more playing time. I know he is a pro but it has to be tough.

Brogdon and Jaylen have been awful in late-clock situations. What are they doing?

He's been good overall tonite. That was just an unfortunate miss.

For sure. I think this isn't a good sign for the postseason though. This might be my dumb fan brain overreacting, but he played himself off the court in the finals by doing the same thing.

They really love dribbling out the clock at the end of quarters and then ending up with no quality look. I realize you want to use clock but maybe get something going around the 8 second mark to set up your play? I don’t know.

This drives me crazy, as does not taking a foul with three or less seconds remaining when not in the penalty

If you’re Grant Williams, you can’t get outhustled for rebounds

Grant needs to go strong to the rim the few times he decides to play offense inside the arc.

You also can't miss at the rim like that. At least draw a foul.
Yeah they dovetail together. If you’re such a minus athlete that Caris LeVert can completely out leap you and reject your at the rim then you’d damn better hustle
