If that keeps up, this will mark the first season in 30 years when NBA teams averaged more than 100 possessions per 48 minutes.
This season, 18 NBA teams are averaging 30 or more three-point attempts per game.
Theres no team doing a better version of zagging during the 2018-19 NBA season than the Memphis Grizzlies.
As NBA teams increase their pace to previously unheard of levels, as the NBAs emphasis on freedom of movement rules this season has given even more of an advantage to offensive production, the Grizzlies have done the opposite.
Theyre taking the modern NBAs full-court game and slowing it down into a half-court game, sporting the slowest pace in the NBA at 95.3 possessions per 48 minutes.
