Hack-A-Ben.

Pat Riley’s team was already winning in the dying minutes of Game 1. Instead of playing on and let fate control the outcome of the game, he let Ben Wallace’s free throw dictate it.

It was 2:28 remaining in Game 1 when the Heat, up by nine points, called a timeout. Then when the game resumed, we saw Shaquille O’Neal foul Ben Wallace, leaving the Pistons with virtually no chance of scoring, not even a single point.

And they didn’t even have to play defense to do it. Ben Wallace’s shooting at the foul line is the best defense from Pat Riley’s cheap tactic.

Jeezus…

Wallace promptly bricked two free throws, although one could point out it was a moral victory that both shots at least hit the rim.

That makes him two for his past 19 from the line, and he’s now a miserable 22.2 percent for the playoffs. Yes, an NBA player is shooting 22.2 percent on free throws — essentially making him a safer bet to miss a shot from the line than the average pro is to make it. - ESPN
