Ha, alright, that makes more sense (going to 21 by 2's and 3's).

However, not to carry this out, but what changes between a game to 11 by 1's and 2's and a game to 21 by 2's and 3's that seems to make players more likely to stand around and jack three pointers in the former but not in the latter? The difference in overall value of a 2 in a game to 11 (18% of total score) and a 3 in a game to 21 (14%) is negligible.

I understand sometimes things on basketball courts are what they are, with no apparent explanation. I was just wondering if there was more to it than that in this case.
