As an aside, why do we as a team always look so terrible from the tripod position? We don't seem to have any standard finishes so we try something risky and get burned. Happened to Scott in this match. Happened to Cael at 2011 Worlds in the Bronze medal match. Happens to a lot of our guys.
He was down by three against a guy with very good par terre defense. In that position, he probably could have just pushed him out for the easy 1pt or got him to touch the knee, but he needed a big move to win the period so he went with a cutback cradle. It was risky, but he needed 3pts in a hurry. Cant blame him for trying to get the win.
