Free throws aren’t as much of a foregone conclusion as the name suggests. Even at the highest level of basketball, sinking an uncontested 15-footer isn’t a given. Miss a few in a row, and a player’s confidence can erode like a cliffside during a downpour. In 2017-18, no NBA player struggled more at the free throw line than Mason Plumlee.…...

Mason Plumlee was never too prideful to do the dirty work. If the Nuggets needed their backup center to give them only 12 minutes of high-energy basketball a game, Plumlee stepped in without complaint. If they needed him to sub in and out at the end of games for defensive purposes, Plumlee did so with a pep in his step.…...
OKLAHOMA CITY — Mason Plumlee sent away Jerami Grant’s shot at the rim, and then he sent away something else afterward: the idea that making the playoffs is an unobtainable goal.
