Why We Advocate Better FT Shooting

Take the Celtics/Knicks game last week.  Boston made 21 free throws out of 21 attempts, winning the game by two points.  If they had shot only 18/21 (85%) at the line, they would have lost.

So many close games can be won or lost at the free throw line.  Which side of the win/loss ledger a team finds itself on can depend on how much emphasis they place on the importance of excellent free throw shooting practice.
