What are you complaining about, exactly? He’s been allergic to the paint, and falling away instead of driving past defenders he should be able to beat, or he hits the paint with no even pretense of not kicking it out.

He’s getting blamed for making the wrong play because he’s making the wrong play.
He passed to the open man. I know he hasn't done enough, but he gets blamed for everything no matter what he does.

And Klay fouls Jaylen two more times with no call... even bumps him out of bounds.

Can't give up 15 offensive rebounds in a Finals game.

They just failed to execute late. It was a concern in close games all year, unsurprising that it eventually cost them.

Smart Al and the bench need to play much better. Tatum too but he's been their 3rd best player still.

For all the Tatum handwringing he's leading the team in scoring, rebounds and assists, (and the flawed single game +/-) we aren't losing because of Tatum, yeah he hasn't been Steph, but he's been okay,
He was amazing in the 1st quarter. Since then he just hasn’t been very good. The box score is lying there

The open man was nowhere even near the three point line with the clock winding down.

It’s literally, objectively, the wrong play.

I mean that's not a foul on Al but they won't win this. Of course.

From the 4:16 mark Jaylen missed 3PA Tatum missed 3PA Smart missed 3PA Smart missed 3PA Horford missed 3PA Horford made 3PA

I don't know, Smart and the supporting cast seem like more of the problem to me than Tatum. Bench has been terrible, White especially.
Smart hit a late-clock 3-pointer to put the C's up four, and nothing good has happened since.
