I think it is tough in that spot.Really missed an opportunity by not calling timeout before TT Shaqted a fool in the fourth quarter. He had two available.
Love what he's done to the team and culture, but I think if he takes a timeout there as opposed to later on, the Cavs win tonight.
2:30 left in an NBA game is an eternity. If you burn a TO there, you now have 1 left for what could be another 8-10 possessions (with fouls) in a tight game.
Seems like there are about 50 possible outcomes there and one of the most unexpected happened. TT honestly should have just taken a back court or shot clock violation there......I'd criticize the player more than the coach.
Two timeouts affords you the opportunity to advance, with a safety net. If I play that game out 100 times, I probably want (2) TO's left a majority of the time.
