TOO MUCH TIME TO FOUL?
Yesterday late in regulation, the Celtics were up three points on the Heat; on defense and LeBron James had the ball.
Nine days ago the Celtics decided to foul against the Bulls in the same situation (Doc Rivers usually fouls in these situations – he has done it twice this year and it was successful both times).
But against the Bulls, some say Doc fouled with too much time left. (That’s been an ongoing debate in the Foul or Defend philosophy)
Here’s the video of LeBron using the high ball screen.
Notice the time when he gets the ball (:13) and the time he launches his shot (:8.9)
The good thing is Boston won the game in double overtime.
