You my friend are completely 100% delusional. In close games like this, getting to, and making free throws is JUST as clutch as hitting a tough shot....some could argue that it is MORE clutch considering the fact that not only do you have to draw a foul, but then follow through making the two shots.

Also, its different if you chillin and you go shot some free throws, compared to just playing 45 min in a tight ass, physical basketball game. Do you realize the pressure that's on the player that is making those freethrows at the end of the game...80% 90% 99% free throw shooters still miss, and if that miss happens to come at that point your screwed.... making each free throw clutch at that point.

And I can guarantee with 100000000% certainty that if you stepped onto the court last night you prob wouldn't have been able to make 60% of your free throws, let alone 90%...especially if you were doing that on the away court....if your that good why arn't you playing in the NBA today?....man, you need a 24 hour ban just for stating that crap lol.

I'm sure this has been talked about somewhere else but could someone clear this up for me please? If Atl wins and the Raps win, the Raps still play the Heat? How does that make any sense, they play all season to finish in a higher seed so why wouldn't the Hawks play the Heat and the Raps play the Wizzards? This is just dumb if true.

Give the kid credit for making a freethrow.

I will reserve credit for places they are deserved, like successfully getting his assist percentage up around his average, for getting his rebounding percentage up for getting is ts% and Efg% up, for actually being a net positive on the floor(even though his defensive rating for the game was an abysmal 116)

I can give you the bit about drawing the foul, but I just cannot get past this whole free throw thing.

1) Every player shoould make free throws, they are paid MILIIONS to play a game, that is one of if not the easiest shot to make. period.

2) and of course everyone will miss a shot, no one is perfect, but if a player consistantly makes over 85% of them, than them making 85% of them is nothing special. Demar has been averaging 89% from the line, he shot this game 91%. he could have missed 1, maintained his average and we still win the game. the time and place of the free throws attempted is irrelevant.

3) Im not in the nba cause Free throws aren't what puts you there.

Making a free throw is not clutch, if he is weak minded enough to let nerves bother him, then credit should be given for him being able to master his nerves. Not be clutch. Clutch is making a big play at the end of the game. Controlling his nerves is not a "big play"

A player, shooting the shot they have most certainly shot more than any other shot in their entire lifetime. The only one in which the have COMPLETE control over the outcome. The only shot with no defenders EVER, the only shot in which you can use whatever routine you choose in order to get yourself ready is not.

Its a percentages thing. period.

I have and will again give credit for his ability to "control his nerves" if he is the type to let outside interferences distract him from his "off the charts level drive, heart and determination"

Almost blowing that huge lead might be a good thing. If we completely blow them out would they take game 6 as seriously as they will now? Now they should be humbled going into game 6. No lead is safe and that was just proven.

Snooch - I feel like you're talking out of your ass in 95% of your posts. I'll just say that I'm not surprised you got asked(?) to leave RealGM.

"
The pitcher on the mound has a team, he has a catcher that he's always communicating with and working with. Every pitch. A mistake and his defense can bail him out. The responsibility is not all his. The kicker has his team, the snapper, the place holder, his blockers. The boxer has his trainer yelling encouragement and advice.

A free throw shooter has nobody. Nobody can help you at the free throw line. Nobody can mess-up for you at the free throw line. The responsibility is all 100% on the free throw shooter.

But guess what, it's just a basketball saying. It's been around for quite awhile. You dont' need to try and discredit everything.

I think Brooklyn might not have gotten up from a 30-point thrashing. A few early jabs in game 6 and they might have folded with shaky confidence.
I just hope the players don't feel comfortable letting it go to 7, hopefully they come-out with desperation to finish the series off.

Ask yourself this question: What would Kyle do?

Agreed, they need to finish them off in Brooklyn in Game 6. I feel as though the tightening of the schedule (1 day rest as opposed to 2) is effecting guys like Garnett (obviously) and Pierce. They were no where to been seen last night in the 4th quarter, and although I can understand Garnett not being in there considering Val destroys him, I was surprised Pierce "The Truth" was on the bench the entire time....i guess the real truth is that these two are getting old, and its been a long season for both of them....and Garnett has no legs left, only his mouth.

They should not fall into the same haze while on the road. And they probably won't get a lead that big. They really just need to be workmanlike and stay smart and not fall in love with the idea that they can keep a lead by just scoring.

One thing that really impressed me, and to me shows some growth, is that they reacted so calm and cooly to some early iffy calls last night. Lowry, Jonas, everyone. They did not come close to showing up the refs in those instances. They just kept the focus on the game. I loved that, and I have to think the refs did as well.

It is a shot he has practiced and made thousands of times in his lifetime, and for most players, it is always the exact same routine.

I for one would be shocked if an NBA player even heard the crowd at all when setting up their shot. Most likely don't even notice them sitting there either.
Are you high?

I agree. I am really impressed with JV. He is so young but plays with so much confidence and swagger. I still think he makes mistakes and all but overall I feel he is underused, especially with how he abuses the bigs during the series.

I think JV's defense has been pretty bad - especially game 4. i think the officials have him confused with some of the ticky tack fouls he picks up early, and then the rest of the game he's trying so hard to be straight that he stops moving his feet. I would say he's been an 8/10 on offense and a 6/10 on defense.

What was with Patterson, he passed up multiple open looks. Unlike him. One of the worst games I've seen from Patterson.

This game brought back all of those feelings of why I hate Demar... Lets hope it was a 1 game mental lapse and he gets back to it. No more hero ball when you don't have any idea what clutch is please!
