(David) Blatt fell into the cross hairs again for decisions he made toward the end of Sunday’s 86-84 Game 4 victory over the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference semifinals

“A near-mistake was made and I owned up to it and I own it,” Blatt said. “A basketball coach makes 150 to 200 critical decisions during the course of a game, something that I think is paralleled only by a fighter pilot. If you do it for 27 years, you’re going to blow one or two. And I blew one. Fortunately it didn’t cost us.”
