    advice to Roy: don't shoot near-airballs that barely brush the rim with 0.5s left

    if Roy hits the rim in any fashion, short front, backiron, anything other than that near-airball that barely grazed the rim and went straight out of bounds, the game goes to OT

    I suppose that's Jim's fault as well? Bad playcalling, right?

    I'm all over the players for last night's loss.

    When he was taking that shot all I could picture in my head was Smits in the playoffs...Hibbert had a chance to hit a GW and be a hero but choked. Hell probably not see another shot at that.

    Pretty sure he can handle the big words.

    Also pretty sure he at least partially means PHYSICALLY toughest. To me it had hints of Knicks/Pacers 94 to it. The Bucks are as physical as any team out there right now, they don't shy away from smacking you around...said Dunleavy's nose for starters.

    I said in the post game that I was PO'd that JOB didn't get Tyler in the game at the the mid 2nd point in order to give them a little of what they were getting.

    Yep, I thought exactly the same thing. At least a few minutes to change the tone. I don't care if he's not a great elbow passer, he could have been very valuable in exactly this case.

    I think feels responsibility moreso in this game. Bogut played well, who was a focal point for Roy in the offseason. Roy missed the last jumper badly.

    Roy's been in a bit of a funk, I can't tell if it's other teams catching up to him or if he's hitting a wall, yet.

    I'm sure they've talked about this with Roy, that other teams would adjust to his new skills/abilities and that he'd have to readjust as part of the process.

    I always appreciate pro players taking ownership the way he does. It's rare.

    GGGGrrrrrrrrrr.....That game was on OB and the players although OB has control over who plays. I agree 100% with your observation.
    The Bucks went over, around or whatever to get the rebound. The Pacers were too passive. When a shot goes up put a body on someone. OB should have put in Tyler.
    Plus I am always disappointed when a team challenges you and you don't respond in kind.

    As I watched the timeout I couldn't help but think, "Guard the rim!" The Pacers ran the same plan against LeBron last year. I would have played off the ball and put a man under the rim. The players and the coach are at fault for this one. There are no excuses. You have to guard the rim!

    if roy's shot hits the rim in any fashion other than a near airball, there's no out of bounds play for the bucks at halfcourt even warranting the final play and its circumstances.

    his shot was basically the equivalent of someone throwing the ball out of bounds to the bucks, who have a timeout, with 0.5s left.

    i'm a big roy supporter...i like his attitude, his demeanor, work ethic and enthusiasm for the game...and he's someone i would thank endlessly for the pacers resurgence.

    but in regards to that shot, i have to toss a big fat c'mon man his way.

    Hey gents. Been a while. Was lurking to see what yall had to say about that heartbreaker last night though and rather enjoyed smj887's observation about the similarity of Roy's near-air ball to that gross Jeff Foster "game-losing" shot against the Lakers.

    So I figured I'd have a little fun at Roy's expense and give him the Where Amazing Happens treatment. Thought you might enjoy.

    Probably the toughest loss because he knows he should have been protecting the rim and let foster guard the in bounds pass

    good ole job screws up another one...


    and i agree the players did not do their part either but when you have a 7'2 guy on your team you let him guard the basket in that situation not some 45 yr old man with a bad back that cant even jump to go after the ball

    Just curious...did you see Roys airball? You know the one we've been talking about.

    How do you factor that into this loss?
    *removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.

    Or put the much more athletic McRoberts on Bogut.

    Personally, I thought it was good idea to put Roy on the inbound passer to force the passer to throw the ball over him. Are we forgetting that Bogut ran through two screens to even have an opportunity to tip the ball in? Call the play for what it was...a good, drawn inbounds play.

    Or you could go with, the most obvious inbounds play.....

    If they catch and shoot with 0.5secs left and hit a long jumper, you pat them on the back and say "Good shot." Sometimes even when you play the best defense in the world, the offense still scores. That's the name of basketball, and any sport really. Good offense will always beat good defense.

    Letting a pass get to the rim for a tip in, is not good defense.

    Put Josh and Roy on Bogut with the mission of trying to swat the ball away if it goes to him, and then the other 3 sag off their men to encourage a jumper.
