Perk said something during Celtics PostGame on NBC about that Tatum shot at the end of regulation...Perk said if we cheer for Tatum when he was taking and making those shots earlier in the game then we have to live with that at the end of the game because he had been making them. Sure with hindsight we probably should have worked on a better shot than a contested 3 after dribbling down the clock. That was my initial reaction on the game thread too. But he's made those in the past many times. Can't blame him for trying to put the team on his shoulders. Next time he will be better for the experience - maybe he will try a drive and kick or try and drive to the rim like he did when he got stuffed by Adebayo (which I am ok with, it was a great play by Bam).
My only objection is that taking a 3p shot at that point does not make sense. Just drive to the basket. Go for the foul.
Even if the had made the shop i still think it was not the best call. I doubt it even makes "analytically" sense.
I am disappointed we couldn't put a seal on the game earlier and with Kemba's performances but not with Tatum
But that is basketball... You win some you lose some.
Analytics would call for a drive if possible.
