Completely wrong. The only major decision I disagree with. You're NOT going to run more clock at that point -- they're going to foul you within five seconds. Take the layup and then play defense. You're guaranteed two points, as opposed to MAYBE two points and only five more seconds off the clock. Risk/reward. The risk isn't worth the reward. Not to mention that (IMHO) one of those "hit the breaks" moments is what led to Eddie cramping up at the end of the game. He injured himself stopping short and stopping hard on a homerun ball down the court. Go to the rack, hit the bucket, and go play defense. Not worth the five seconds.
My only question would be whether that's something that Seth has drilled into them as an end-of-game situation or if that's their own "coach said bleed clock" split-second decision. If that's being coached, that needs to change. You just can't pass up easy layups.
Not to mention you may get a cheap and1 opportunity.
