At the same time, you can't go sticking your thermometer into a cup of coffee that happens to be on the court and report the players experienced temperatures of 212F.
IMO, the reporters are being sensational. People do outdoor activities here when it is even hotter without complaining about the pavement being 150 degrees (unless they're barefoot). If the air that the players were breathing was really constantly 142F, I'm fairly sure they would soon lapse into a coma like a dog left in a car with the windows closed even if they weren't exercising vigorously.
