Rise of the Four-Point Plays
We bet that you have already heard this phrase during the 2013-14 playoffs: “Another four-point play for …”
This year, playoff’s fever was exceptional. But not only fever, a number of four-point plays were exceptional, too. 2013-14 playoffs produced all-time playoff record, 25 four-point plays. Previous record set at 2009-10 and 2002-03 years with only 8 plays!
Did this huge jump come from nowhere? Nope!
This mysterious trend started with 2012-13 season and with 2013-14, it hit top numbers. Do you remember that four-point line issue? Maybe referees decided to bring new kind of four-point line to the game?
