The Warriors down one, 103-102, in the final seconds against Cleveland, and all they need is one stop. And guess who finds himself wide open at the top of the key. You guessed it, the Cavaliers’ best outside shooter Daniel Gibson.
He had only gone 7-for-13 for 19 points prior to, so there was a good chance he would stick it. Of course he did, right.
For the life of me, I don’t understand why this team refuses to tell one guy to stay with the hot hand. Why not tell Monta to follow Boobie everywhere, don’t let him get an open look. I know it’s contrary to the rotating, helping defense they normally play. But for one possession, one critical defensive series, it can be done. It should be done. Find the shooters, and don’t leave them.
