    Too young, and too naive.

    Ah man, the inbounds being behind James kinda threw the play off. If he catches it on the run it would've been a much closer and easier lob to Dwight. As played, it was still there, and James is capable, but a lower % play. Still would've preferred us running clock and just taking a 3 at the buzzer with Utah tomorrow

    This is why it was dumb as....

    Even if he gets the ball they will tackle him before they let him get a dunk.

    Honestly man the only play in that situation should be a Harden chuck or passing it to an open shooter. Dwight shouldn't even be in the game for offense.

    Put Dmo at C, Beas at 4...STRETCH THE FLOOR. Defense or rebounding doesn't matter in that situation.

    There are still many people on this forum that have delusions regarding Dwight's defense. The guy just is not good at it anymore, let alone elite. He's flat out BAD.

    Good point. There is a very good argument that Howard should have not been in the game.

    Ummmm.... Ariza, Brewer and HARDEN shot 13-41. Beasley shot 5-12, which while isnt amazing, is not bad. Why include him when he actually shot better than our star who was 7-17???? AND turned the ball over on the last play, along with multiple other key plays (5TOs, wtf)?

    I said the same thing after that play because Dwight looked at Harden as if it was someone elses fault that their big man got an easy layup.

    Looks like Dwight was trying to pass the ball back to Terry.

    after watching that video a couple of times I don't think the pass was as bad as I originally wasn't a good pass not really the best but a 610 C should have definitely caught that ball. Regardless that's a stupid play anyways even if Dwight does catch it he's just going to get hacked there is no way Adams nor waiters let him get up a shot

    It was definitely catchable. Just a little off target, but a player like Tim Duncan definitely would have catched that. Dwight commits so many turnovers simply because he can't hold on to the ball, which is just pathetic.

    When the Thunder scored easily in that baseline inbound pass, that changed the momentum of the game… Also, Jb played too much Brewer instead of Beasley again…. This game is on JB in my opinion.

    This. It was not a good play in that spot of the game at all. Beasley needed to be in the game. The Harden/Beasley PnR has been a successful play. Just don't understand that last play at all.
