On April 23, Beijing time, the NBA playoffs continued. Today, the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Suns 100-112 at home, and the total score of the series was rewritten to 1-3, only one step away from being eliminated.
In this game, Paul George and leonard continued to miss due to injuries. Wei Shao, who joined the team with a basic salary, once again became the core of the team. He made 17 of 29 shots, made 3 of 6 three-pointers, slashed 37 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists, but he still couldn’t help the team win.
It is inevitable that the Clippers will lose, but what fans can’t accept is that the referee once again took over the game. In this campaign, the Clippers team only got 10 free throws, while the Suns had 27, which was quite different. Wei Shao, who frequently hit the basket, didn’t get any free throws today. In contrast, Durant only shot near the basket twice, but he got 11 free throws, more than the Clippers team.
It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time this series has seen such an outrageous situation. In the G3 match between the two sides, the Suns got 46 free throws, while the Clippers only got 25. That is to say, the Clippers lost 38 free throws in the past two games, and the referee’s intervention was too obvious.
Xiao Bian wouldn’t be surprised if other teams occasionally get so many free throw opportunities, but Sun is the most representative jump shot team in the league. Most of their attacks are done outside the paint area. Why can they get so many free throw opportunities without killing the basket? You know, the Suns ranked 27th in the league in the average number of free throws per game in the regular season, but now they rank first in the league with 30 free throws per game. Isn’t that ridiculous?
For this round of series, it is obvious that the league wants the Suns to win, because compared with the Clippers who lost their dual cores, the Suns with the Big Four have a higher topic, and they can help the league earn more money. I have to say that this year’s playoff referees frequently intervene in the game, which has seriously affected the authenticity and fairness of the game, and the league’s eating is really getting ugly.
