    Ya, the free throw thing is a dang mystery. The teams with the top 5 % of shots at the rim last year were DEN, DET, HOU, MIN, and MIL. Of these teams, Milwaukee was the only team with a disappointing finish in FTr with 27th. That said, Milwaukee had some very, very raw big men last year. Sanders is a bit of a soft finisher, despite taking over 5 shots per game at the rim. So while it is certainly possible for this trend to continue, I’d doubt it. It’s so rare to see a guard with a high volume of rim attempts get to the line less than 5 times per game. Hopefully, it will all come together tonight!
