The only "effect" it had was getting Saunders to take Wallace out of the game. It was not successful at any point in ANY game in getting MIA a win whereas they would have lost had they not hacked Ben. As a matter of fact, no team has won a game where they used that strategy to try to get the ball back. Hell, Dunleavy invented the damn strategy and HE's never won a game trying to do it. Doc Rivers tried it relentlessly against us, when we had Ben, and failed repeatedly. Dozens of teams have tried it against Shaq every season and lose every time they try it. As far as I'm concerned, even if all you "odds" people found a game in which it worked...the "odds," as you like them, are far and away NOT in favor of using this strategy as it results if far more losses than wins (if any).
