It's early, but there have been the most fouls per game in the NBA than any season in the past 30 years. pic.twitter.com/klq4X7ifJp— Irish Mamba (@theoshow34) October 22, 2018
Not exactly a great stat if you enjoy the pace of play.
It's unclear what's causing this. It's not just about players getting to the line often as much as it just seems like referees are calling a tighter game all across the league.
NBA should be able to challenge reach in fouls . The refs make too many BS calls to control the game. It’s sickening— Isaac 'Dub' Madison (@that_guy_maddog) October 22, 2018
How long this will keep up, we don't know, but the NBA might need to eventually step in and calm things down if this pace doesn't level out soon.
