Damian Lillard didn’t win this one.

The Warriors announcers called it as it was happening; the Dubs should have sent two defenders at LeBron James and forced someone else to beat them. With the clock ticking precariously close to the end of the game Wednesday night, and the Heat down by two, LeBron dribbled at the top of the key with Andre Iguodala mirroring his movements. Iggy played him perfectly, and ‘Bron was forced into a fading three-pointer with Andre’s hand in his eye. But the nylon neatly rippled after LeBron’s heavily contested shot fell through with just 0.1 seconds remaining. Read More »
