saw in one of the threads that espn had us with 8 points in the paint in the first half (even though we only had 2 2pt field goals).

the 8 points in the paint is pulled from free throws made that are the result of fouls called on shots that are missed in the paint.

for example, henderson drives into the lane for a layup. he gets fouled going up but misses the shot. he gets 2 free throws and hits them. they are considering those two free throws "points in the paint".

the statistics program that is used for the games does not count the points in the paint the same way. I will try to find out if i can which one is actually correct.
