    I was a bit hesitant to pick him up, glad I did tho. I also wondered why he was still available when I went looking.

    I dropped him because I knew Brooks would be coming back soon. Even though he's still playing great and is getting the minutes right now, I don't mind that I dropped him because he's only a short term option.

    Too bad the Spurs don't attract the same national attention as the media darlings. I attend or watch on local tv every game. They are simply rolling over almost everyone they play. It's a massacre.

    I'm confused, which play were you talking about? IIRC, Clips were down by 1 and thats when they had to score so when they got the opportunity they did, when Gordon drove and dropped it to Jordan for the dunk. Next play was Lakers ball and Kobe dribbling around and Gordon fouls him with 3 seconds left. That's how I remember it and if the Clips had to capitalize and score, thats what they had to do, you can't pass up that chance. It might have been a bigger risk if they waited for the clock to run, the Laker defense set and not get up a shot or get a bad look. Considering they had a foul to give, they did the right thing I think since they can foul and and make it harder for the Lakers to make the final shot, which Fisher did anyways. [​IMG]

    Yeah...that's the one. Yeah, they had the shot and I guess you take it if it's there, BUT I just can't remember a time when any team didn't put their play maker at the top of the key and had him dribble until about 8-7sec left on the clock for the game winner.

    Maybe you're right....the foul to give does sort of change the dynamic.

    I've seen it several times, like some wants to depend on their defense or if the lane just open up like it did for the Clips. Or they just want more time in case they miss they can play the fouling game, it gives them more chance to win than a single shot.

    A carmelo anthony and a solid big is a lot to get haha but I get what your saying. Amare has been looking real good this season and I'm impressed. Let's just hope he can keep it up and stay healthy since I just traded Kevin Durant in 2 of my leagues for a combo of amare & tony parker and amare & aaron brooks.

    If you're down by 1 but have the last shot, you want to take it somewhat early so you have a chance to crash the boards and get another play. [​IMG]

    Unless I read the situation wrong, I didn't watch the game

    just for fun, i'm rereading the last 5 pages of this thread. now that they're on a 6 win streak, are all the poasters who were burying the Heat because of their losing streak now ready to give them the championship? seems only fair [​IMG]
