    Sigh, good game and a very good play by Smith. Ball was definitely out the cylinder. This one is tough to swallow after playing so hard to get back in it.

    Both Hayes and Landry didn't go after a body. Shane can't do everything.

    Didn't understand what adelman did by sitting Scola, we were defending great with Him and landry for the previous 5 posessions, no need to take out the only decent rebounder you had.

    I really don't understand what he was thinking.

    smith's man got lost on the pick and roll...can't really blame them though for following the shooter, usually 5 sec is only enough for one shot, smith just made a great play, if the ball is rebounded time would have run out..

    Landry went over to help contest the shot, and it left his man open. Josh Smith just made a great play to win it.

    Either way, I love the way this team continues to battle. They never quit, no matter what the situation is. We just need to start executing better in the 4th quarter and we would be just fine.

    A good loss for this team, or a good loss for you so that you're team/coach hating looks correctly predicted?

    Anyway, great game, great comeback.

    Unlucky shot at the end. The only way that ball gets put back in is if it bounces EXACTLY the way it did.

    If that was Yao it would have been an offensive foul over the back but not against us.

    You mean why didn't he box out anyone the entire night.

    I love the guy, but he has to work harder on boxing out. He can't just rely on athleticism to grab every board.

    That was a kick-in-the-junk-that-you-can-build-on kind of game, if that makes any sense.

    No. Battier was boxing his man, which was not Josh Smith, who was Landry's. Landry went over to contest Bibby's shot, and left Josh Smith wide open. Can't really blame Landry, after being clutch.
