    Counting On Alums Jinger Duggar and Husband Jeremy Vuolo Announce Upcoming Childrens Book Supply chain issues, bottle shortage and drought create perfect storm of problems for wineries Scoring is down to start the NBA season, but the league is pleased with how the game is being officiated to date. In a session in which select media members spoke to league officials, it was expressed that the crackdown on non-basketball moves has gone according to plan — even if there’s been some increased physicality at the rim and on drives in the meantime. After years of seemingly endless scoring increases and defenses feeling as if they had no chance to compete, the competition committee stepped in to eliminate some of the so-called “gimmicks” — a word used by Byron Spruell, president of league operations. “That purity is coming back in a nice way,” Spruell said. “Just getting away from the gimmicks, and I think that’s a part of what we intended to set out to do here. “The data is suggesting, lending itself that this is going in the right...
    The best Michael Douglas roles Avoid a Flop With These 25 House-Flipping Tips © Provided by NBC Sports Trae Young – the rare person complaining not enough fouls are being called amid the NBA’s new rules – drew a season-high 11 free throws last night. He made them all. As did everyone else on the Hawks and Wizards in Atlanta’s 118-111 win. The teams combined to shoot 45-for-45 on free throws, an NBA record for most foul shots without a miss in a game. Just five games have ever featured a perfect mark from the charity stripe: © Provided by NBC Sports It’s unsurprising Young, with his smooth shooting stroke, made all 11 of his free throws. But Montrezl Harrell – a career 66% free-throw shooter – led Washington by going 7-for-7 from the line. It’s a good opportunity to praise Harrell for improving his free-throw percentage for years running, up to 82% this season.

    After a loss at Washington last week, Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young calmly aired some of his frustrations with the way NBA games are being officiated amid a new crackdown on non-basketball moves used to draw contact. The 6-foot-1, 164-pound Young, who made more free throws than anybody in the NBA last season, said he agreed with some of the changes, but he was clearly concerned some fouls are now being overlooked. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM A short while later, Kyle Kuzma of the Wizards weighed in on Twitter. "The new rules changes to the sport are the best thing the league has done in recent history," Kuzma tweeted. It's not unusual for the NBA to tweak the way rules are enforced, and it remains to be seen how officiating might evolve throughout the season. So far, some of the game's biggest offensive stars are indeed going to the free throw line less often, and there's some concern that the changes may be allowing more physicality in general, beyond what was intended. "If we’re sacrificing freedom...

Last season it was 112.3. The bubble season it was 110.6. The season before that it was 110.4. Through the first two weeks of this NBA season, scoring is down — way down, 6.1 points per 100 possessions compared to the season before. For a league that has leaned toward opening up the offense and letting the athleticism and skill of its players shine, it’s an unexpected trend. What is causing the drop? The easy line to...

    I never thought I’d feel sorry for James Harden, but NBA officials have a personal vendetta against him so far this season. Harden could get mauled, or attacked by a tiger on the court, and it wouldn’t matter. He would not get a foul call. Despite his status as a star in the Association, NBA officials have taken it upon themselves to send Harden’s game back to the 90’s. He must play through contact, despite the fact that his game is predicated on getting said contact, and landing at the free throw line. When Harden doesn’t get his free throws, his game fails. It’s that simple. On Friday night, we got another example of what happens when Harden doesn’t receive foul calls. open season on mauling James Harden right now. pic.twitter.com/CEJphfgNa2 — Rob Perez (@WorldWideWob) October 30, 2021 This is a foul, no?
