Oh, you wan't old key contemporaries still contributing in the playoffs? Ray Allen, 2 years older. Derek Fisher, 3 years older. David West, 1 year younger. All vital to their teams playoff chances. We were beat yesterday because our role players did not step up, couldn't shoot, and Timmy had a subpar game, and TP was awful.
Those misses from 3 were bad shots and taken at the worst time, which led to GS getting the lead late. He didn't recognize that his shot was not falling and kept jacking it up. He's supposed to be the "finisher". But the sad reality is that he's inconsistent with his shot, is a poor defender, injury prone and turnover prone. And you can't bring up the game winning 3 in game one, because it was his fault they had to go to overtime!
