    Some interesting stats from the first 3 rounds regarding last 5 min of each Q.

    In Rd 1, 60.3% of all shots (114 out of 189) in last 5 min were super shots. Of these 62.3% were successful. Success rate for all shots in this period was 72.5% and in total 208 points were scored.

    In Rd 2, there was a drop in volume and accuracy of super shots. 52.7% of all shots (107 out of 203) in last 5 min were super shots. Of these, only 45.8% were successful. Success rate for all shots in this period was 63.5% and in total 178 points were scored.

    In Rd 3, a further drop in volume of super shots but a rise in accuracy. 40.9% of all shots (74 out of 181) in last 5 min were super shots. Of these, 54.1% were successful. Success rate for all shots in this period was 74.6% and in total 175 points were scored.

    Theory: In rd 1, everyone just went for 2 pt shots and the defence hadn’t worked out strategies to combat it yet. By rd 2 the defence was getting smarter. The success rate dropped. By rd 3 teams were more hesitant and tended to put up 2 pt shots when more comfortable doing so.

    As a result, things have flipped. In round 1, 3 out of every 5 shots in the last 5 min of each quarter were super shots. By round 3 that has reversed so that now 3 out of every 5 shots in the last 5 min were regular shots.
