    Rondo's missed layup

    That's when we lost it...

    Agree 100%.  Absolutely cannot miss that shot with 48 seconds left.  I know he's injured, but if he can't make that shot, he shouldn't be in the game.  It was the exact same play from KG to Ray earlier that Ray stuffed.

    If Rondo didnt play we wouldve lost in regulation.
    He is the heart and soul of this team now.

    Rondo shouldn't even have been playing, except maybe spot duty.

    38 minutes of one armed PG play was valiant but certainly not winning basketball.

    We would have been better served with Arroyo and West.. but then again Rondo would have insisted...and Doc would have caved.

    Big Baby missed layups in the game, Garnett missed a dunk and several of the big three booted passes that wer easy scores, why blame Rondo? It sounds like yall have it out for him. I have pulverized my radial head (the bone he dislocated) and I guarantee he was in massive pain, yet performed at 80%. He kicked butt given the situation.  He lost the full contact jiu jitsu with wade the cheap shot artist....It was Docs call and Doc is no fool. The reticence to call fouls on Wade and James was the difference here, nothing more.

    Because Rondo's miss was at a more critical point in the game.  Its like being in a football game and saying that you dropped a 10 yard pass for a first down in the first quarter and its the same as dropping a touchdown pass with 48 seconds to go that puts you up.   That was a massively important layup and he should have made it. 

    The refs always favor the Heat, but in the end, we have to play and we cannot blame the refs.  We blew the game with poor execution at the end of the game, and Rondo's was the worst offense in a series of bad executions.

    Maybe yall missed the two or three big hits Rondo took on Defense. God forbid they might call Lebron for charging (his favorite moves). Rondo got clobbered in the effort. Arroyo? Does he play for Boston? Rondo deserves credit, he wouldve played if it fell off, dude,

    A lesser player is sitting on the bench in street clothes.  If you want to blame the loss on someone, how about KG (1-10 FG) and two or three turnovers and dropped passes. 

    These guys played hard and lost, it's not fair to blame Rondo.

    No, its like getting facemasked and dropping the ball in the fourth quarter with :48 seconds remaining. Ref doesnt call it, no review or appeal available. Please apples to apples dust to dust...

    Re: Rondo's missed layup

    idk about some of these posts but Im with those that say you just simply cannot miss that shot really ever but especially at that juncture of the game...the injury didnt even play a role there...it's the rondo spin, he lays the ball up with a spin thats all his own and it allows him to make circus shots but it also means misses on regular layups because you simply dont need the spin when shooting a regular layup...to me that's just choking pure and simple, your team made a winning basketball play and you blow an uncontested layup

    I'm not one of the ones blaming Rondo.  I'm just saying his late missed layup was massively important.  I think the total team lost it with poor execution down the stretch.  We saw this late in the season and its now come back to hurt us.  They played hard, i loved them, but their legs just gave out and the shots did not fall coupled with Miami showing some real heroics!

    I did not see a foul.  Maybe you did, but I'm not blaming it on the refs.  We need to accept that we lost it, not the refs.

    Hard to win when Delonte West is your back up point.  And Glen Davis should have had more playing time

    You're obviously not a "great player" because you've got nothing better to do than second guess someone on a message board and then stuff your face with pizza.

    Exactly. Gotta blame Doc and his "I played my whole career with one arm, " crap statement he made on ESPN.  And Shaq isn't worth a damn either.  Doc needs to get real.

    Re: Rondo's missed layup

    It was one of many key moments... BUT...

    A 13 point 4th quarter ???? Outrebounded 45 to 28 ???

    I have no idea what that "play" was at the end of regulation.  They'd have done better to go wide 4 corners and let PP solo in the middle. What was that mess???

    As we have seen, this Miami team is very beatable. We had them tonight.

    Now, we're in the coffin, talking to the angels. Can we climb out?

    Yes, but not if these guys have to play 40 plus minutes. Don't blame the players. They played their guts out. This was Grady staying with Pedro.

    Re: Rondo's missed layup

    Cant argue that Rondos missed layup was key... 

    but our offense disappeared... either missing open shots or in a crisis with the shot clock winding down. 

    With all that, with KG playing a poor game, with Rondo and his elbow, with Ray not scoring most of the game... how the heck were we in a position to win the game in the final seconds?
