IMO, the problem is as much not having the experience of a close game as it not knowing how to win.
So you would rather have close games than winning by +20? The problem I had with our last game was not that we couldn't win a close game or the shot selection down the stretch, it was how we let big leads evaporate in the last part of both halves. We scored 11 points in the last 10:50 of the second half....11!
The first half was even worse with 9 points the last 11:20 of the half. Put them together and we scored 20 points in over 22 minutes of the game after building big leads. That's where the game was lost, that and freethrows.
There's a gator in the bushes, he's calling my name, and he says
Come on, boy, you better make it back home, again
Many roads I've travelled - they all kinda look the same
There's a gator in the bushes, Lord, he's calling my name
Oh, Gator Country
