Re: Who should take the game winning shot?

Because Casey knew what kind of shot it would be when he made the decision? What Casey knew was that Bargnani had a size advantage and he knew where Bargnani can get the ball, which is inside the 3 point arc.

Your understanding of crunch time basketball is just outrageous. It is a game of chance not just a single right or wrong decision. It's not like the play was Jonas launching a 3. There are several viable choices and one of them was Bargs and it just didn't end up working out.

Re: Who should take the game winning shot?

I mean let's use your logic for a second here. Let's say that the "right decision" is Kyle Lowry taking that shot. Don't you think that the Pacers coach knows that also? Don't you think that maybe, just maybe that he could create a defensive scheme to counter that if there is only ONE RIGHT DECISION? You go into the situation with several viable options so that the opposing team can't prepare. I don't know how else to make this more clear, Bargs shooting a 18 footer IS one of those options. Do you see Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan on our team? If not then I hate to break it to you that the Raptors currently don't have one of those players that the opposing team knows will be taking that last shot and still can't do anything about it. Casey chose Bargnani, it didn't work out, get over it and stop bitching and moaning about the play and what a monday morning quarterback would do differently.

Re: Who should take the game winning shot?

lol easy.

Yes going to bargs was the wrong choice. And was Lowry the only Raptor with the hot hand? No Jose was also shooting well, and yet they had him inbounding the ball which took a viable option out of the mix. 2 seconds isn't really long enough for the inbounder to get a decent shot off. I'm not bitching and moaning here, I'm just saying that I feel Casey called the wrong play. And also (don't know if I said it in this thread or not) why the hell didn't he call a TO at some point during that 11-2 run in the last 4 minutes?

Yes I do feel that Casey cost the Raptors a victory. And sorry about the Monday morning quaterbacking, but it's all I can do because I'm obviously not the coach. But if you were watching the game with me I called the play the Raptors ran before it happend and was cursing as soon as Bagrs got the ball.

Man these threads are to discuss things no need to get angry over my view of the play call. No wonder the Grizz moved to Memphis, you guys are angry over there.

Re: Who should take the game winning shot?

Right.....Jose taking that last shot would be miles ahead in terms of correctness over Bargnani's shot....I'm sure we wouldn't be having this discussion right now if Jose shot an unbalance shot with a hand in his face because he lacks the athleticism to get open. If you can't spot the sarcasm here I am being sarcastic.

And Jose inbounding the ball did not take away an option. There were 2 seconds left which is enough time for him to get the ball back if that was the play Casey chose. Jose is a good passer so having him inbounding the ball has its advantages.

I still don't think you understand what I'm saying here. There are several viable options. Bargs shooting a shot over West is a viable option, end of story.

Re: Who should take the game winning shot?

I would agree with you, but you aren't taking into consideration how poorly he was shooting. I do get what you're saying, but it's wrong under the circumstances of that game. Never said Bargs should never take the last. Just not when he is ice cold.

Re: Who should take the game winning shot?

Going on what I see right now (3 games isn't much to judge) Lowry the guy but seeing how Lowry possibly our best player I like to see him as a decoy in a drive an pitch situation to one of our skilled shooters, Jose, Barg etc
