That Time Jae Crowder’s Full-Court Shot Didn’t Count
Most of the time, fullcourt shots at the end of a quarter that get waved off by the referees are because time ran out.
But in the case of the Celtics’ Jae Crowder’s full-court shot against the Pacers before halftime Wednesday night, his shot with one second left that banked in was waved off – because time never started.
Crowder was inbounding the ball behind his own baseline, and he was trying to make a length-of-the-court pass to teammate Jared Sullinger on the other end.

Sure, it wasn’t the result Crowder or the Celtics were hoping for, but hey, a fullcourt shot is a fullcourt shot! I’d blame Sullinger for not being there for the tap-in!
