A lot has been talked about over the past two days about the Suns and Bucks game on Tuesday night. The most controversial topic of the game happens to be the discrepancy in free throws between the Bucks and the Suns.
Star player Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 24 free throws and the Suns as a team only shot 16 free throws. Deandre Ayton in particular had 5 free throws mid-way through the third quarter which killed any shot of him playing the rest of the way until the later portion of the fourth. Head coach Monty Williams alluded to this issue post-game after the loss on Tuesday night.

After the morning shoot-around on Thursday, Ayton talked with the media and was asked about the game on Tuesday and what his thoughts were on the foul calls.
"I ain't going to sit here and talk about calls. I play as physical as it gets. Maybe I am playing too hard. Maybe I am fouling, but at the same time, I love to compete and I love games like that where it's high intensity."
