Courtney Lee laments airball 3 pointer

New, comments

I didn't realize it at the time, but Courtney Lee was coming in cold off the bench when he got that pass. Still, he's got to be able to do better than an airball.

"I mean I know Doc (Rivers) talked to the media and probably said it was unfair that I was sitting like 12 minutes (before the shot) but it doesn’t matter," Lee said. "NBA players we get paid to play this game. At least, I got hit the rim and give us a chance to get the offensive rebound. I didn’t do that so I’m very disappointed in myself. "I know when I took the shot, I was stiff so I overshot it to try to make sure it got there. But I put a little too much umph in it. I gotta be able to make the shot or hit the rim, at least."

Oh well, maybe next time Court.
