NBA Handicapping: Timeouts hurt rather than help late in games

02.22.2012     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly

Interesting article on how timeouts tend to hurt scoring at the end of games in the NBA. The theory behind it is that a timeout allows opposing teams to set their defense.

That just doesn’t make sense to me, because at the end of games in those critical timeouts, that’s when the best coaching and game planning comes to the forefront. It’s not like those guys just isolate and run out the clock, while everyone in the building knows they are going to hoist a pathetically low percentage shot from any spot on the floor upon which they happen to be standing. It’s really a by product of that fabulous, only the ASSociation could come up with this, rule that awards the ball at midfield to any teams that had the presence of mind to retain one of their timeouts, rather than waste them as "teaching" moments during the course of the game. If the penalty for not wringing the life out of a game meant setting up your opponent in virtual field goal range as the result of a non-score, then I imagine football would lose some of it’s intrigue the way professional hoops did years ago.
