usually, I say there is a point where you take the foot off the pedal a little and don't try to score on every shot. That doesn't mean stop shooting altogether.
The one team that we played during the final game of the season last year was up something like 10-1 or 10-2. Being that we play in a small league where mostly everybody knows everybody (league is maybe 100 deep) and only maybe 2 or 3 of the people genuinely hate each other, we agreed to run the clock for the 3rd so we could get home at a decent hour. Some people might take it as showboating, but the team that was up was trying stuff they normally wouldn't try in a close game. We ended up losing something like 14-5 or 15-4, but we didn't care. We knew where the talent was that game, and it wasn't on our bench
That being said, if there's a team playing rough or like it's game 7 of the Cup Final, and they keep playing dirty after it's 6-1, I have no problem with the winning team dropping another 10 on them.
