    My snap thoughts:

    Teague's defense is ****ing atrocious.
    Stop switching so much and putting these guys in these crappy situations.
    Nate sucks at drawing up plays.
    Tristan Thompson is going to abuse Myles the entire series.
    How does Nate not know Cleveland is going to bring the double on PG at the end?
    Really can't see Cleveland winning the title this year. They are terrible defensively.
    LeBron is the GOAT.

    It is but I also have to note that this would be a very dangerous pass. It's really easy to deflect or intercept a pass like that.
    True, wish we would have been prepared to have PG drive it past Smith before Lebron got there and adjust into a better play.

    That would make too much sense.
    Right, because Cleveland wouldn't know you are trying to run screens to get PG open. They would do everything to deny him the ball and GLADLY take their chances with Jeff Teague or Lance beating them. Putting the ball in your best player's hands is what you want.

    Whatever slim hope I think we had of winning this series just went out the door IMHO. This was our game to win.

    Right, because Cleveland didn't know what we were doing when we did that.

    It's really remarkable that we had a shot to win that game. We were BEGGING to lose that game with some of those ridiculous defensive switches we kept making.

    Even people who don't watch basketball saw how dumb those switches were.

    Well we know one thing: Nate certainly doesn't up his coaching game in the playoffs. Oh wait, he's had over a decade of being a mediocre coach so we already knew that.
    This would've been the same result with Vogel how soon we forget Game 1 of the 2013 ECF


    The Cavs aren't impressive but the Pacers aren't good enough to take advantage of it for 4 games.

    PG13 will bolt after next season and honestly I don't blame him. Playoff PG13 shouldn't be wasted on such a mediocre team.

    I'd say same for Lance but he doesn't seem to succeed elsewhere.

    I don't give a **** if they knew or not--I want the ball in PG's hands. You know how much you guys would be throwing a fit if PG never even touched the ball on the final possession?

    Am I alone in thinking that we generally played atrociously and the only reason we got back in the game was a brief #LanceEffect run in the 4th, yet we still had a chance to win the game? Paul had disappeared for the better part of the 4th. There was also no D, both in terms of scheme and execution.

    Hmm have the final shot to win the game--don't really think you can get any better chance than that.
    If he's talking about the series he's right.

    If i'm Lebron James and i see Jeff Teague guarding me, I probably get called for offensive fouls because of my giant erection.

    I was all for the firing of Vogel but replacing him with his assistant wasn't exactly a good move either.

    Same crap different coach.

    Our defensive switching has been a boon to opposing offenses all season.

    Cleveland's horrible FT shooting is the only thing that kept it close. We would have stolen it.

    Defense needs to be better. The Cavs were blowing shots in the last 5 mins rather than us forcing misses.

    Lance had a great game, but that dumb 3 point attempt was a sickener.

    Change is neither good or bad, it simply is.

    No idea. Lance was clearly open at one point, but it still was a pretty long pass IMO. Seems to me like Lance should've flashed to the top of the key to make it a little easier of a play.

    He was wide open and had been knocking down shots... I'll take that. Nobody hits them all.

    How good would Lance be if he could make three pointers consistently?

    Lance had the best FG% on the team and the second most points. What do you guys want from him?!?

    Not from 3 with time on the clock. Have to know when to pass up or look for a better shot yourself.

    Lance was getting what he wanted when he put the shoulder down and driving to the hoop.

    You have to take the good with the bad. What if CJ Miles could dish like Magic Johnson and dunk like Michael Jordan. You have to look at the whole package. Lance isn't a 3 point shooter and he will never be one.

    While the missed shot and whether the last timeout was wise or not will be discussed, the reason for the loss was the defense, especially for the first half but most of the game in reality. Cannot let them have a layup line like that.
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    Sure. Pull Lance off the floor and we lose by 20 or 25.
