Pietrus not even practicing his freethrows

You would think after missing two critical freethrows at the end of the 4th in Game 2 that Pietrus would be practicing freethrows until his arm falls off. NOT THE CASE.

Won't toe the line: Despite missing two free throws that probably would have clinched a victory in the final minute of Game 2, guard Mickael Pietrus refused to go to the free-throw line Thursday.

"If I practice free throws today, I will think about it tomorrow," he said. "If I practice free throws today, I would probably break the rim."

After Davis, who also missed a free throw as Golden State blew a five-point lead in the final 53 seconds of Game 2, finished his media responsibilities, he headed straight for the foul line. Al Harrington and Andris Biedrins did the same. But Pietrus just looked on.

"You would think that I could make at least one, but I missed both of them," he said. "I feel sorry for my teammates, because they played very well. I'm trying not to think about it. It already happened, so there's nothing I can do about it now."

He did have an interesting recovery plan, however.

"I'm going to go home, play with my puppy, take him to Golden Gate Park and make him happy," Pietrus said.

Its irritating as hell that Pietrus doesn't seem to acknowledge his weaknesses and parts of his game that needs work on.  Sometimes it seems like he doesn't even try to make an effort at improving himself.
