Ok. So a player has 2 or 3 fouls in succession so you sit him tor a bit so things settle down. Makes sense.
But why, when there’s 6 minutes left in the game, would you sit a player who just picked up his fourth foul like Bruce Weber did? You don’t want him to foul out because he’ll lose minutes so,you take away his minutes? Is this the whole “you want to make sure he’s around for the end of the game”? Just, from a pure mathematical standpoint it doesn’t make sense, but there’s probably something I’m missing.
