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.
I think it is tough in that spot.

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.

If you watch the replay you can see Beilein yelling at Thompson and pointing to the guard (might have been Garland) to pass it to him and all Thompson had to do was stop and do it. You can also see Beilein grabbing his head after Thompson launched the shot. I think Beilein was surprised as anyone that Thompson didn't get the ball to the wide open guard so never even considered he would need a time out to fix the train wreck.

You love how aggressive nad successful Thompson had been in the paint, but he needs to kick out under heavy coverage, and he needed to kick it out when he knew Embiid was right there too really. If he can get to his hook, that is awesome. If 4 guys are hounding him he needs to get it out to 3.

We should have more 3 pt attempts right now and part of that needs to be the bigs getting doubled in the post which they are all the time now that they know both Kevin and TT are having great years.

I love that he keeps talking about assists. Miami is exactly what we want to be, the move the ball so well almost best in the league. Also like that he keeps mentioning our lack of length, hopefully its something the team addresses in the future when drafting/trading for players.

Rotations are whack. Needed to get Sexton and some of the starters back after the second unit got us closer. They were dead tired...don't know what he was thinking.

We need more ball movement and better sets. We barely use off ball screens. Watch the Heat and how they free up their shooters...and since we can't switch because of size, they get wide open looks. I'd like to see us run screens for Windler when he comes back.

TT never sets off ball screens, he just watches the play if he doesn’t have the ball or is setting an on ball screen
