Free throw disparity

There are two ways to look at the huge gap in free throws during Games 3 and 4 in Oklahoma City, when the Thunder shot 34 and then 48 and the Lakers shot 12 and then 28. First, the Lakers aren’t fast enough to keep up with the Thunder. They aren’t moving their feet on defense and are reaching for the ball. They are playing a step behind the faster Thunder. Second, the referees are killing the Lakers. Personally, I’ll go with No. 1.
