Low NBL scores
There seems to have been a few games this season in which teams have struggled to score over 70 points. A few seasons back the umpiring changed and we had teams scoring more (and Mika Vukona fouling out a lot). Has the umpiring focus changed back again?
How does the umpiring style impact on a team's ability to rack up a big score?
Have the low scores been the result of good defence? Umpires letting physical defence to occur? Teams with new players not up to speed with offensive sets etc.? All of the above?
And, do we need higher scores to ensure fans perceive the games as exciting, free flowing, more 'NBA like'?
