Not for me

We needed a shot and we had turned the ball over several times in the preceding minutes. Maybe getting a matchup with Percovic was the golden ticket but Id prefer a shot by Kraus (who beat their best defender on several occasions), D Amario, Aitken, Conrad or Zed all who are capable of beating their defender (whoever that might be) and getting a quality shot. Maybe we turn it over 5 seconds later or take a bad shot, but at least you "catch your breath" and operate in a deliberate fashion. That said, I think I might have a bigger issue with not taking a timeout when Thompson ran it across or our pole was in trouble. Possessions are golden, we turn it over enough with our attacking play, no need to allow a turnover when you have a timeout...since you are clearly not saving it for the final minutes just to set something up.
