Wasn't there 8+ minutes left and wasn't it Irving who fouled Drummond to get him out of the game? The Cavs had their starters in. How long would they be willing to foul with them? They still need to score so they can't just sit them. It would have been tough - really tough - but maybe you dare them to foul and hope you can get 3 stops in a row? I think Van Gundy's reasoning that he doesn't put Drummond back in at 2 minutes because "He can't use him for anything" is BS. If he can't come up with a way to utilize him off the ball then that's on him. That's him passing the buck. That's him, the barrel chested captain, making sure he's the first one off the sinking ship.
