I think we can all agree that Nate's rotations, crunch-time execution, and poor officiating all played a role in our game 1 loss. Curious to know what B-edgers think was the single MOST important element of our loss last night. For my part, I think while Nate and our guys should definitely shoulder a fair amount of the blame, the officiating conservatively cost us 8-10 points between tic-tac calls for Dirk and non-calls on blatant fouls to Miller/Wallace/LMA on the other end.
What was the primary determinant of our inability to close out game 1?
