Some would say that I´m about to behave like a Mav-whiner-Fan.... but I´m not (I think)
When a team is going to win by 15 points, then some one-sided bad calls make that the same team wins only by 7, but doesn´t change the result.
Now in a tied game when a team is going to win by 3 to 5 points, then some one-sided bad calls make that the same team lose by 5 or 6 and changes the result.
I don´t wanna be called whiner, nor crybaby and even less Phil Jackson, so go to some stats facts I found on the comments section of 48minutes of hell.
Thank you Todd
In the first game for all series, here are all of the FTs per team. In parentheses next to the number of FTs is the average number of FTs per game in the regular season. When you look at the set, it is obvious that somebody got screwed.
Bulls – 11 (23.9) 46% of normal
Cavs – 17 (26.6) 64% of normal
It was called as “playoff basketball”. Cavs got a few more than expected.
Bucs – 17 (20.4) ) 83% of normal
Hawks – 19 (23.3) ) 82% of normal
A little under regular season calls for both teams.
Utah – 32 (27.2) ) 117% of normal
Nuggets – 28 (30.6) ) 92% of normal
Near regular season calls.
Spurs – 14 (24) ) 58% of normal
Mavs – 34 (22.8) ) 149% of normal
Worst called game of the batch.
Take out the 6 intentional FTs on Dampier, leaves the Mavs with 28 (123% of normal).
Take out the 4 FTs given to Spurs after the game was already decided, leaves the Spurs with 10 (42% of normal).
Portland – 31 (24.8) ) 125% of normal
Suns – 16 (25.8) ) 62% of normal
Ten intentional FTs at the end leaves the Blazers with 21 (85% of normal).
