Point/Counterpoint: Flagrantly Foul?

C’s are moving forward

"We let the game get away, but we gotta move on," said Kendrick Perkins. "Doc said it, we can’t live in the past. We've got a chance to tie it up, 2-2, and get back to Cleveland. I feel like it's a must-win for us tomorrow." And after what he dubbed two "lousy" practices before... [More]

Just what did Mark Blount teach Perk, exactly?
