The Anatomy of Wins and Losses in the NBA:
Breaking Down Key Possessions
Key Possessions which determined the W-L result:
- the entire 3rd Quarter
Playing their 4th game in 5 nights and trailing by 5 points to open the 2nd half, the Raptors allowed the 76ers to shoot 60.8% from the field – yielding 7 interior baskets (i.e. 3 dunks, 2 layups and 1 tip-in) and 5 Offensive Rebounds – and, then, made 6 Turnovers (Parker/3, Calderon/2, Humphries) of their own in the 3rd Quarter, alone … a sure-fire recipe for disaster.
