Meh, I like extending the game here especially agaiant a team inexperienced in closing out games. One missed FT and you can attack the rim to make it a 2-point game. They make both you have a chance to get a quick 2 to reset the same sequence or look for a 3 to cut the lead to 2.Down 3, 30.8 seconds left, and they intentionally foul once OKC gets it over the halfcourt (28 seconds left at that point). Wouldn't the smart play be to try to get a stop and keep it a one possession game instead of conceding the free throws and making it a five point game?
Even if we get a stop and the ball with 6-7 seconds to go then OKC can quickly foul to never even give us a shot at a 3 to tie. I agree with Brad on this one.
