“Are you serious?! Did that really just go in?!” was the reaction of almost everyone attending or watching the Utah – Oklahoma City game.
There was 0.2 seconds left on the shot clock as Utah tried to inbound the ball in the second quarter against Oklahoma City. With that much time on the clock the only legal way to get off a shot is a tip, so most teams run some kind of play trying to free up a big near the rim and throw a lob.
But Utah has Trevor Booker. He can work miracles. Apparently. He hits a tip shot from waist high off a bounce pass with his back to the basket from eight feet away.
That may be the shot of the year.
The Thunder went on to win the game 99-94.
