Hollins is a moron. Up by three with 1.7 seconds left and you don't foul? Not to mention Spurs had used all their timeouts.
They just gave the Spurs a ton of momentum for game 6.
Fouling with 1.6 seconds left is a terrible idea. No coach in the league would do that. If you foul before the ball's in, it's two shots and the ball, and if you foul once the ball's in, there's a pretty good chance that the shooter gets in the act of shooting while you do.
lol Plenty of coaches have done it, especially when they know the opposing team is out of timeouts.
As soon as Neal touches the ball, Mayo should have grabbed him. The Spurs get two free throws and the Grizz are still up by one point with about 1.5 left. Then the Spurs have to foul giving the Grizz two Free throws. As I said the Spurs would've had no timeouts to advance the ball down by two or three with a second left, game over.
Neal had a second to take a dribble. That's the second you grab him and avoid fouling him in the act of shooting.
No. Neal has a REALLY quick release. That would have been a stupid foul.
