"We were so DAMN lucky!"

We had no business winning game 6 let alone win game 7 had Atlanta won today. For once, luck was on our side, thanks Big Al, now I love 'ya a lot for missing that first free throw. My advice for Doc - don't leave Hollins in the 4th, he's still very raw that he actually hurt us on offense & defense when we had 9 a point lead in the 4th. As much as his energy & hussle is appreciated, he's still so raw that he coughs up a lot of opportunity to score, then the opponent's talented or experienced power forward (in this case, big Al) eats him up offensively. This is how Atlanta rallied & took the lead late in the 4th, we were just so damn lucky to win! Hollins is kind-of like Perk offensively, it allowed Atlanta to double team & rotate on our scorers leaving Hollins free since he's not a threat, then when the ball gets to him, he doesn't score. The only saving grace for Hollins this game was the box-out on big Al very late on the 4th & consequential foul on Al with Hollins basket not counting. Better to have Bass late in the game even if he's not having a good game (like today) because at least Bass can make baskets, it prevents our opponents from doubling on the Big 3. Also, Bass plays D too. And since Atlanta's not big, Bass really should've been there instead of Hollins. So Doc, please against Philly, play Bass late in the 4th instead of Hollins, there's just too much at stake.
