Suns coach Monty Williams didn't go as far as lobbing outright criticism atthe officiating crew that worked Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but he did have some, uh, observations.Following the Bucks' 120-100 win on Sunday night, Williams was asked about the difficulties in putting together a strong frontcourt rotation with Deandre Ayton stuck on the bench. Jonathan Garvin Jersey The 22-year-old center got off to a hot start, scoring 12 of his 18 points in the first quarter, but he struggled with foul trouble in the second half.MORE:Ayton was subbed out afterpickingup his fourth foul with 10:25 remaining in the third quarter and pulled again after being called for his fifth foul with 8:54 left in the final frame. He played just 24 total minutesin Game 3."I'm not going to get intocomplaining publicly about fouls. Just not going to do that," Williams said during his postgame media availability."But you can look we had 16 free Jimmy Graham Jersey throws tonight. One person had 17. So Ayton is we got to learn from that. We got to beat guys to the spot. He'll grow from this, I promise you he will."Suns coach Monty Williams on Deandre Aytons foul trouble, and the free-throw discrepancy between the Suns and the Bucks Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) Williams Brett Favre Hoodies Sweatshirts was referring to Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo firing up 17 free throw attempts compared to 16 for the entire Sunsroster. (Milwaukee shot 26 as a team.) However, it should be noted that Antetokounmpo has been among the league leaders in free throw attempts over the last few seasons, and Phoenix averaged during the 2020-21 regular season, the second-lowest mark in the NBA.Phoenix attempted 16 shots in the restricted area all night and GIannis attempted 12 by himself. Just based on that you'd expect them to have similar FT volume. Anchorage Man (@SethPartnow) When asked how he can guide Ayton through foul i sues, Williams chose his words carefully, but he clearly intended to send a me sage about what he perceived to beinconsistent calls."Yeah, that's a tough one. I don't even want to go there," Williams said."It's pretty self-explanatory. We got to figure out or define what is a legal guarding position because there are times where he can move his hands out of the way, but it's hard to tell a guy what to do when somebody is running into you, you know what I mean? I don't know what a legal Davante Adams Jersey guarding position is at times."But they were aggre sive and we have to give them credit. I'm not going to sit here and complain about a team that is aggre sive. But we have to understand how the refs are calling the game and then Isaiah McDuffie Jersey adjust to that. There's a ton of physicality in the game, for sure, but as far as teaching him, we got to look at the film and see where he can have better body position and pick up some charges when they present themselves."Williams may receive a call from the league office regarding hiscomments, but if a little gamesmanship gives the Suns a better whistle in Game 4, he won't care all that much about the consequences.
