That was a crazy ending... I feel bad for Pittburgh... but we have to remember that it wasn't the missed free throw that lost the game, it was the fact that the game was so close at the end that lost them the game.

It was the bone headed IDIOT for Pittsburg that lost the game at the end. He will always be reminded what an IDIOT he is.
This will FOREVER be shown on TV and he will be associated with STUPIDITY. What was that IDIOTS name? Oh well, just gotta watch ESPN to see it over and over. What a LOSER!!!

Yes there were some asinine last *second* fouls by BOTH teams at the end of the game. But John, I have to say that you are a little foolish to believe that any single player on the Pittsburg team "lost" the game. A number one seed should not be trailing a eighth seed by one point when two seconds to go in the game. It was the entire Pittsburg team and the coach that lost that game, not just one person on one play.
