07:35 AM ET 12.24 | A margin of 20 trips to the free-throw line on Sunday didn't sit well with the 76ers after Sunday's loss in Brooklyn. The Sixers made 8 of 10 free throws. Brooklyn (14-12) made 21 of 30. "It's discouraging when it happens right in front of them," Sixers forward Evan Turner said of the officials. "You know, it's just crazy. We went to the line, what, six or seven times, but it's 20 more the other way." ... Jrue Holiday, who led the Sixers with 24 points and nine assists with just two turnovers, attempted the lion's share of his team's free throws: He made 3 of 4. "I feel like it's up to the refs," Holiday said. "The refs are going to call what they are going to call and there is no point in arguing it because they are not going to overturn it."

This is why i can't watch NBA basketball anymore. We had actual strategy in the 80's and before, now it's just get a "star"," let him charge in the lane, get "fouled," and get points. Oh, they travel half the time too. Go Seahawks.

Thats pretty laughable...basketball was no more strategic in the 80s...you could hand check and play mad rough on the wing. The strategy was called "beat up the star on the other team". I'm in my mid 30s so I watched ball a long time...think MJ wasnt going to the line 20 times a game bc u was "touched"? And he also was the king of traveling..hard to make a generalization about an entire league
