[INTERVIEW] 4x NBA Champ Kurt Rambis: “Nothing but confusion” on Heat final possession of regulation
ESPN NBA Analyst and 4x NBA Champion with the Los Angles Lakers, Kurt Rambis, called "The Sportsbash" today and talked with Mike Gill and Todd Ranck about the NBA Conference Finals.
Both conference finals are now tied at two games a piece with the favored teams (SA, MIA) relinquishing a 2-0 series lead.
Also, NBA fans around the county are still waiting for one of the four teams to lose a home game.
Much of the questioning to Rambis was centered around the Miami Heat and their failure to execute down the stretch.
LeBron James tied the game at 89 with a 3-pointer he hit with less than 30 seconds left in regulation, but ultimately came up short when the Heat had the final possession to win the game.
On that possession, Rambis said: "I saw nothing but confusion."
Much has been made about James decision making in the closing seconds of games. Sunday night, LeBron James had the ball with time running out, but double/triple teamed and was forced to give the ball up to an open Udonis Haslem.
The series returns to Miami Tuesday night for Game 5.
With the Western Conference Finals, Rambis went on to say how baffled he is with how the Spurs have been dominated these last two games. Saying Tim Duncan isnt playing the way he's capable of playing.
That series resumes tonight with a Game 5 from San Antonio.
Kurt Rambis is an NBA analyst for ESPN and played 18 seasons in the NBA. He also coached in the NBA for three seasons.
