Breaking Down Alonzo Gee’s Game Winner

I was looking for a pick-and-roll between Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao last night on the Cavaliers final possession. Byron Scott put the ball in Waiters' hands and it looked as if the Varejao screen was indeed an option. I'm not sure if Waiters waved it off, or Varejao made that read, but no ball-screen came. Dion instead took a long jumper that would've missed badly if not for Alonzo Gee.

Here's that play from the Atlanta perspective last night:

"Aww man, what a bad break for the Hawks".
