Well both teams played well and both teams had many chances. The C's coulda, shoulda lost in regulation. I do think they should have found a way to beat a team with much less experience.
Sure some shots went in and out like Baby's layups. They should have found a way to at least get a good look at a 3 rather than Pierce's force. I think they should have gone quick and extended the game, maybe even taken a drive to the hoop.
I only think that the experienced team should be the one executing down the stretch. How big was Salmons' 3 when it was 105-100? How big was Scal's giveaway and then his "clear path" foul?
This series is even and yet the C's might have swept it. I believe that the more experienced team should win more than one of three contested games.
That said, injuries have relegated this season to "moral victories." They can't beat Cleveland so whatever happens from now on will have to be for fun.
