That was a huge risk. Why not put a low pass towards opponents basket (even roll the ball on the floor). Even if Raps dont get it there is only one second to pick up the ball and make a shot from own half. Its quite hard to take the ball from ground and release in less than 1 sec to make a halfcourt shot and you have people there you have to shoot over in this situation too.
The collective stupidity of all the playes by Raps on fourth (along with idiocy from coach in lineups) was probably some sort of record. High school kids would make less stupid mistakes in that situation.
yeah, was thinking the same thing
not sure if they had T/Os left, because there was enough time to steal, call timeout and run a play, so there was that danger to counterbalance
if they had no time outs, it's a no brainer you throw the ball somewhere towards their sideline, by the time they catch, turn around, it's unlikely they even get a shot, and that shot would be a side to side 3pt attempt ...
