Anyone else tired of getting sizeable leads and then letting them slip away in the blink of an eye?

It's like they hired,,what's his name, Thates?,,to be a shooting coach and for every point BG32 has gone up at the line, DJ has gone down

I am. Like I said the truly elite, perennial contenders like SA almost never shoot themselves in the foot. We shoot ourselves in the foot more than ANY other contender in the NBA. Basically when we have control of a game we seem to do everything in our power to let teams back in. I miss the days where we were regularly blowing out teams by 15+.

Think about how the other teams feel when they close on us, then eventually get pounded anyway

The Heat might have the best offensive wingers in the game, the Grizzlies have the best defensive wingers in Allen and Prince.

DJ sucks sorry. He is a worst free throw shooter than Dwight. Embarrassing.

Also the big hands bullshit excuse doesn't fly. Blake's hands are almost the same size as DJ's and his free throw shooting has been very very reliable this year for the most part as has his jumper. Where as DJ's free throw shooting is plummeting.

I think it's time to accept that DJ will never be a good FT shooter. He just needs to have the Ben Wallace role.

DJ didn't make a single improvement on fts...might have actually gotten worse! We got this game! Need to close it out!

Might? His free throw shooting has dropped like 12 percent. His defense has also declined. The only improvement has been his post game but that was the lowest priority thing he should have focused on. Defense+free throw shooting is all anybody cares about for him. Nobody cares about a hook shot.

When we prove we are a truly elite perennial contender, then we will almost never shoot ourselves in the foot. We're not there yet. Your expectations are a little to high right now. wink

We need to keep feeding DJ and let him go for 20/20.

Glad we're up at the half. Smile

Not really, as long as we win. With that said, we have a 94% probability of winning this game. Love those odds.

I agree defense and rebounding is way more important. He needs to be like a Ben Wallace, but with more length and weight. But his ft is worse then Shaq and Dwight!

Firstly, where are you getting those numbers? Just curious, because you've posted percentages like this in other game threads, too.

Secondly, it's still a bad habit to fall into regardless of the short-term results. If we play this sloppy against OKC, we're screwed.

I agree that we aren't a tier 1 contender... but we are close and close enough to where we shouldn't be shooting ourselves in the foot so much. We have to start having a much stronger hunger to close teams out. I'm sick and tired of big leads evaporating in literally a minute, especially vs significantly worse lotto teams. It comes down to letting teams get wide open 3's and layups.

We should be giving hard fouls on layups and dunks like teams do to us. We should be focusing our defense on the 3 point line and less in the paint, knowing how bad we are defending the 3. Besides 3's hurt a lot more than an occasional layup.

LOL, 94% probability of winning my ass. We just choked a double-digit lead down to 5 against a lottery team. This is a mirror image of the Pacers game, too, so get ready for the chokejob in the 4th. And CP3's playing like ****, so he won't be the savior tonight.

DJ is by far the most overpaid player in the league simply because of his laziness, bad attitude, and complete lack of skill. We should have shipped his ass out at the deadline.

We have no shot in hell with our backcourt playing like ass. Why the fu** has Crawford been benched so long when he murdered them?

DJ... smh... CP got beat and DJ didn't back him up and let Waiters dunk in his face and give Cavs momentum. Inexcusable, that's supposed to be his thing right? Blocking shots?

Should be a flagrant. Zellar made ZERO fu**ing play on the ball! Dude literally just shoved Blake.

CP3 looks so weak today. Great job passing as usual but defensively+shooting wise he's been atrocious. I'm starting to feel like these subpar CP3 games are becoming common.

I really hope so. I mean guys like Parker, Westbrook, Rose don't have bad games this often. Sure they may shoot 10-30 here and there but at least they consistently attack the defense and get free throws. CP3 it's like when he vanishes... he's invisible outside of the assists.

The Cavs' announcers are extremely annoying. Even their voices are like nails on a chalkboard. They remind me of Tommy Heinsohn, another insufferable blowhard announcer.
