Does Joe Mazzulla deserve blame for the Boston Celtics Game 4 Loss to Philadelphia 76ers?

Does Joe Mazzulla deserve blame for the Boston Celtics Game 4 Loss to Philadelphia 76ers?

After trailing by as many as 16 points against the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics had a chance to steal Game 4 away but came up short in a 116-115 overtime loss.

Late in the game, Jaylen Brown made a costly error by double-teaming on Joel Embiid, leaving James Harden alone in the corner to hit the game-winning 3. With time left on the clock and two timeouts to burn, Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla let the play unfold instead, which led to a made Marcus Smart 3-pointer that was a few tenths of a second late. Does Mazzulla deserve blame for the loss?
