The NBA criticized the Brooklyn Nets’ attempt to troll Giannis Antetokounmpo and told them to quit.
Front Office Sports’ Anthony Puccio reported Tuesday that the NBA asked the Nets to stop with some tactic when the Milwaukee Bucks star is taking his free throws. The team has been setting a timer on the Jumbotron to signal any ten-second violation by Antetokounmpo. Puccio says the league has asked Brooklyn to remove the timer.
Antetokounmpo had been assessed as a violation of the free throw rule, in which the ball must be thrown within 10 seconds of receiving it from the umpire, at the end of regulation time in Game 1 of the Milwaukee first-round sweep. over Miami. Antetokounmpo has really struggled from the line to the first two games of this series. You only got 2 out of 10 correct.
Before Monday’s game, Nets coach Steve Nash said he hadn’t noticed the scoreboard clock during Game 1.
“I have not been [paying attention]. I really want to focus on our team, ”Nash said. “The whole thing is a bit confusing: is it a rule? Isn’t it a rule? Are we calling it? Aren’t we calling it?
While Antetokounmpo has its problems from the line, the entire Milwaukee Bucks team is having its problems with the Nets.
