    Hack-a-whomever gave us 6 points if I'm not mistaken?

    6 free throws without having to attempt anything, and we win by 2.
    Take note moronic coaches!

    Let's be real. In the average case hack-a-whoever would have killed us.
    Just thankful Smoove and Howard stepped up this time around.

    There hasn't been a scenario this season where we fell further behind through hack-a-whomever has there?

    I recall it working for the Spurs because they took us out of our offensive rhythm, but to try it in a playoff game, have it backfire in such a spectacular fashion, leading to essentially giving the game away is far too risky isn't it?

    Perhaps worth trying to sneak a game away from home, but he forfeited this game by trying it.

    Our bigs making those free throws gave us the game. Good for all of them staying calm and making it happen.

    Carlisle looked like he gave up near the end. Time for Cuban to announce another "back injury"?

    Let me just say something.

    Hack-a-whoever would work in the average case IN THE REGULAR SEASON. Players are much more focused in the playoffs and it is absolutely showing.

    Well, he had to try. In the end, we just have too much quality. Harden scored 5 points in the last minute. They don't have anybody like Harden. We can just dump the ball to Harden knowing he will score. What a luxury. Then Howard is just a different animal after the knee injection.
    The Howard and Smith play is still work in progress and it's only going to get better. Tough for anybody to solve including the Spurs.

    He just mad because McHale is out coaching him. I've been a harsh McHale critic, but he deserves a standing ovation for this series.

    Hope you are right! I would love nothing more than to kill the hack-a-strategy. Its killing the game of basketball.

    The numbers are clear.

    Time to rid ourselves of Dwight, the cancer.
