Memphis shooters were unconscious. The D, for most shots, was right in the face of the Memphis shooter. They just could not miss.
They usually shoot 29.6% from three point land. They shot 58%.
A guy who had three three pointers all year made four in a row. The same guy shoots 50% from the FT line and he goes 9 for 9.
Throw is the fact that the officials called 8 fouls in the first TWO minutes of the second half as a start to Memphos getting the double bonus for 12:30 and there is nothing but a free throw contest. And Memphis scored 29 from the line.
Yes, we foul a lot. But the first and second half were night and day from the officials. Not sure we changed much. But Memphis HIT their FTs.
So, I’m not that worried. I don’t think the officials call it like that again. It just deflated all of the energy.
