After pushing the Warriors to the final seconds on Saturday, the emphasis of Monday's Sixers practice was executing down the stretch and all the intricacies involved in it.
Once down by 24, the Sixers forged a comeback to bring the game down to the final seconds. Stephen Curry found Draymond Green, who kicked it out to Harrison Barnes on the corner for the game-winning three with less than a second remaining. The Sixers failed to connect on the final possession.
The Sixers had a day off to digest the game and focus on what they could have done differently. A resounding emphasis was placed on what to do down the stretch when the team has a foul to give. The Sixers did not foul the Warriors on their last possession.
Brown took a step back from the huddle of reporters after practice to demonstrate the challenges of determing when to use it. He referenced how the team was successful in doing so against Jimmy Butler and the Chicago Bulls last month in comparison to Saturday aginst the Warriors.
"If we have a foul to give and seven, six, five, when do you want to use it?" he said. "Because if you whack somebody at eight, all they do is make two free throws, I call a timeout, you advance the ball, you run a get-in play. It's not like we're a great free throw shooting team, hopefully you make those two free throws, they call a timeout, which Steve (Kerr) had, and they bring it back right where you started with six seconds on a clock. So you've got to be careful of when you do it.
