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 normalCavs – 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.... See More

Heat 13 (23.5) ) 55% of normalCeltics – 28 (25.5) ) 110% of normal
Miami got the short end of the calls in this one. Six intentional FTs at the end leaves the Celtics with 22 (86% of normal).

Utah – 32 (27.2) ) 117% of normalNuggets – 28 (30.6) ) 92% of normal
Near regular season calls.

Thunder – 24 (27) ) 89% of normalLakers – 22 (24.2) ) 91% of normal

Bobcats – 28 (26.6) ) 105% of normalMagic – 27 (26.5) ) 102% of normal

Spurs – 14 (24) ) 58% of normalMavs – 34 (22.8) ) 149% of normal
Worst called game of the batch.... See More
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 normalSuns – 16 (25.8) ) 62% of normal

Whether or not a team was given more/less free throws than their season average gives zero indication of how the game was reffed. Especially after one game.

As an aside, can we start making threads after every game that is reffed well?

FT/a relative to FG/a would be more telling, but yes that Dallas-Spurs game was the worst of the bunch, still its not why the Spurs lost.
