Bret, what did YOU think about the decision to leave the scrubs in with 39 seconds left? I still can't justify it in the face of a two possession game and enough time left to make noise. On the other side, you saw the fantastic Mo Williams come back in with Ilgauskus and Delonte West.

Obviously, you only made that run because of the Cleveland reserves inability to score/inbound the ball, but to concede at that point seems to cheapen the efforts of the Hawks' reserves.
