The day after his team’s biggest win of the season, Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt had to address several controversies that sprang up in the wake of the buzzer-beating victory over the Chicago Bulls.

“As far as the play’s concerned, [the criticism] is just not fair. Sometimes you go with your player’s feeling because you believe in what he can do. That, at the end of the day, was my decision to go with what he felt. That’s just not fair,” Blatt said.

“[James] didn’t veto the play. He just felt strongly about what a better situation would be. As it turned out, that was the right thing.”
