Pin this lose squarely on the shoulders of Mike Brown!

Although "Daniel Gibson's defense" is an oxymoron.
He cannot check the mail.

The obvious absence of Z in the second half is ridiculous.
He has been the Cavs' most consistent player for most of the series, but as the Celtics built a 12-point lead, he and his booster seat were planted firmly on the bench?!?!
NBA.com 's +/- shows Z w/ a -9.
I find that hard to believe.
By my count the Cavs were -17 w/ him on the bench.

Turnovers, missed free throws and allowing Boston to shoot almost 70% in the 2nd half are all correctable mistakes.
But a coach who has no faith in his own players and no ability to make halftime adjustments is an albatross around the neck of a team that honestly should have won all five of these games.

I have stood up for Mike Brown to the harshest of critics, but this is the final straw. If the Cavs do not win this series, he MUST GO!!!
