43 is awful hard to "accomplish" with the 30 second shot clock.
Let's consider that if each team took the entire 30 seconds in both halves of play. Each team would have around 40 possessions and even if each team shot 40% from the field, it's a tie score of 32-32. Now, spray in free throws and a few made 3s.
Again, 43 is hard to do.
