Any Closers?!

From what I've seen these past 2 games (against good teams, I may add) our dubs can still ball with the best. 

The goods i noticed, and probably everyone else has too, is defense and crashing the boards has improved greatly with the addition of Ronny (5 blocks tonight!) and AB together in the front court, shot selection has improved a bit, Kaz is a monster in the making, DeMarcus Nelson is surprisingly good for an undrafted rookie and Nellie going tall ball tonight actually was effective since our "bigs" are still quite mobile. 

There is a bunch of stuff that still needs improvement of course but one of the things thats bugging me the most is the ability to close out games.

Both nights our dubs have blown leads in the final minutes of the game.  I know that BD used to be the go-to guy and Monta should be "the man" but his absence for the time being makes him not an option.

Before the last shot against Toronto in regulation, I pretty much kept thinking give the ball to Magette over and over in my head.  Once he had it, the outcome was unbelievable how he tried to flop.

So the question is: who should handle these clutch situations for the time being? Magette? (maybe it was just a bad turn of events?) Or maybe try running a play for Kaz to hit the big shot? What if the Italian Stallion Bellinelli (following statement highly unlikely) pulled through and sunk a game winner? Post up your ideas and what ifs on who you think should be the man.
