I was actually more ok with Malcolm's shot than Cosby's. When you have a game like Hill was having and you get an open look you take it in this offense. Cosby on the other hand wasn't hitting and hasn't been hitting so probably would've been better to pull it back but I understand that they have the ultimate green light despite what has been going on with Cosby and Starks.Just to add on to the above - Hill's missed jumper was 6 seconds into a new clock when we were up 11 with 1:21 left. By the general rule of thumb - that's time for sitting on the ball.
Cosby's missed 3 was 4 seconds into the clock when we were up 12 with 4:17 left. Not completely inadvisable to shoot an open, high percentage shot then, but with the way he was shooting it was completely inadvisable to shoot a 3 when we could have burned another 3 seconds.
