    I have to agree with you Bill. I see a whole lot of talent breaking down the defense here. You can't really blame Heinrich for the fact that Dunleavy wasn't ready for the pass, or that Dunleavy was unable to get his shot off before the defender closed in on him.

    It sounds like I'm picking on Mike Dunleavy, so let's look for some positives in his game. He does set an excellent pick for Heinrich's defender as Kirk is coming back off the baseline, forcing his defender to play a bit of leapfrog.

    If he hadn't bounced the ball off his leg he had the defense set up right where he wanted them. Could have been glorious.

    If they had Andre Drummond, that would have resulted in an assist and a dunk you very much.

    I didn't realize it at first, but even the pass was overdribbled.

    Heinrich over dribbles like Ben Roethlisberger holds onto the ball too long. He's trying to create opportunities for his teammates. He's trying to force guys to move. This is different from Allen Iverson over dribbling.

    I used to coach fifth grade basketball, and they all shot like that. Clearly with time running out, Dunleavy fell back on his instincts.
