The Clippers weren't allowed to park defense in the 3rd without a whistle. For a team like Denver who is a really low free throw shooting team to get 16 free throws in that quarter was laughable. The refs got the Clippers out rhythm offensively and defensively that quarter and they never recovered as they played tentatively on defense after that.
the refs did impact the game but if the game is managed better we also probably are fine.
But look at the numbers, up 16 at half, Denver gets 12 points from the line on 16 attempts, attempt 15 shots total in the 3rd and yet they score 30 points. That 3rd quarter swing was manufactured in my opinion
i would say there were only a couple pretty bad calls, like that lou williams turnover. but both things can be true.
