NBA 2018-19: 3 talking points as Utah Jazz came back from behind to beat the Pistons
#2 Good scoring display from both teams
This game was a good display of the offensive potential of both teams. They shot well, found open looks and made points when it mattered. Most of all the flow of this game was pretty good which made the game very entertaining.
The Utah Jazz and Detroit Pistons both shot at a field goal percentage of 47.6%. They both played smart and took quality shots. They even took an equal number of shots, 82, and made 39 of them. But the difference was in the free throw numbers of both the teams.
While the Jazz shot 25 of their total 32 free throws taken, Pistons didn't create enough fouled shots and ended up with 16 made free throws out of a total of 20.
In such a highly competitive match it was the free throw that made the difference between these two.
