Injured Hands in NBA Games on 5/11.
I noticed in tonight's game's they were putting emphasis on Injured hands.
If you watch the Heat game it seems weird. Deng just all the sudden goes out with 5:09 in the 3rd and wasn't holding his hand/arm or anything. Then he leaves the game for good.
The 5:09 is interesting because he wears # 9.
Later in the 3rd Carroll of the Raptors injures his hand. He's # 5 hence the 5:09 sticks out.
5:09 to 1:16 is a span of 3:53.
In the Warriors game Lillard also hurt his hand.
Then later Barbosa hurt his hand
Then Draymond Green "Accidentally" slaps the refs hand and injures the Refs hand.
Only Deng actually went out of the game but still interesting they were putting a lot of emphasis each of these occurrences.
Injured Hand=108, 54
Not sure of the significance but i'm guessing there is something to it. Especially with Chris Paul Breaking his hand in the previous series.
