    This would be a game where we would've needed Kyrie. Chalk it up to bad luck. We had the game, but Waiters was guarding both LeBron and Ray on that last 3 pointer. What's he supposed to do?

    Still, it was crunch time minutes, I think the more crunch time you get, the better it pays off when you're contending. So Dion gets a good 101 in defending the best vs. the shooter.

    No, Waiters wasn't. He didn't need to help at all. Whoever was on Bron (I think it was Gee) was right there. Varejao was waiting behind him. Waiters really had no reason to help off the BEST THREE POINT SHOOTER in the NBA history. He'll learn. I hope.

    Hard to criticize Scott after this one. If you blame him for the loss, then you also must credit him for coaching a bunch of mediocre players to a near-victory against the most talented team in the league. Lebron, Wade, Bosh, Allen vs. our collection of rookies, former D-Leaguers, and guys that should still be in the D-League.

    We could have won, yes. We could have had a better play towards the end, yes. We could have also been blown out and given up right away, but they played tough.

    The Cavs have been playing extremely well in the past 3 games since Kyrie has been out. Suddenly there is actual defense and ball movement, and not just a bunch of guys standing around waiting for Kyrie to do his thing and trying to cover for him on the defensive end. Players that looked like they don't belong in this league all of the sudden nearly pull a win at Miami. It's great that Scott can manage to get that kind of production out of these players, BUT if the Cavs' style of play reverts back to what it was when Kyrie comes back, Scott will lose the team. He needs to find a way to adjust Kyrie's game in a way that will benefit the team, and look to develop him not only as an individual star player but also as a star team-player (and at least a respectable defender).

    My thinking would be because he didn't want him to rebound the ball and immediately get fouled.

    I'd also like to know if he told Pargo to run the clock down or Pargo did that all on his own.

    Weren't you paying attention to the Heat's last full play? LeBron charged into the right middle of the paint and even Varejao and Gee combined were not enough, so Dion actually was moving in between both LeBron and Ray. One would force us to tie, the other would be a 1 point game. The way we executed after that, there was nothing we could do...

    James drove right. Waiters, who was guarding Allen on the wing, helped off him to dig down on the drive. In that situation, the one guy you dont help off of especially with LeBron James with the ball is Ray Allen.

    Waiters invited the pass and James makes that play all day long in that situation.

    Correction:

    James didnt drive right. He caught the ball on a curl going into the right side of the lane.

    Cavs gave up over 50% shooting and 100 points the last 2 games so slow down.

    Theyre getting the exact same shots but guys who couldnt find Lake Erie from the Goodtime II are now making shots. Everything looks better when more than 3 guys on the roster are making shots.

    They may be making shots, but you can't deny that the ball movement looks a lot better.

    Is it possible that they are making the shots because they feel in rhythm with the flow of the offense now? Team play/ball movement/rhythm can effect whether or not a certain player makes a certain shot.

    Hopefully it is just a situation where everyone is coming out of their slumps at the same time because I don't want to think about Kyrie being "the problem" quite yet.

    Execution, is the problem not the coaching down the stretch. Others might have mentioned, Dion should not have helped off of RAY ALLEN one of the best 3pt shooters of our generation.
    When it comes to the last few pos. I am pretty sure that is not what was drawn up in the huddles.

    Execution, not coaching. That is all.

    Sure LeBron can score well, but he's also a great passer. No doubt Waiters is at fault on that last play, and no doubt Byron didn't draw up too great of a play on the other end, but you can't solely put the blame on one single person.

    Waiters and Pargo made a couple poor decisions down the stretch that sealed our fate but how can you even be mad at them? Scott deserves a lot of credit tonight because both units were able to rotate within each other and look cohesive for the most part. I think we're making strides as a young team and Scott is a big reason for it.

    The only thing Scott could of done from a coaching standpoint was call another timeout on the inbounds to try and get another shot off but the game was over anyway.

    You can't plan for Ray Allen missing a free throw.

    Not the first time he's done that against the Cavs....

    Yes, Scott deserves some credit for keeping the team in the game, but the iso for Pargo was terrible. He's got Wade on him, who has height, experience, length, etc all in spades over Pargo and he does some idiotic spin BS that had zero chance. If you have Kyrie, fine, run the iso. Otherwise, run a damn play.

    I don't think he's at risk of losing the team. I think everybody respects Kyrie too much, but I share your other concerns. KI has a lot to learn too, and some time on the bench watching the team try to execute without him might help.
