But did the shot clock run out?

I was standing about 15 feet from Nem yelling for him to shoot (he seemed oblivious to the clock). When the ball went up, it appeared the clock was at 0, but for sure it was 0 when the ball was in the air, but the backboard never lit up. Very curious. Twisted Evil

Does anyone have it on their DVR for a second look? What do you think?

The shot clock light (yellow LEDs just below the red ones) is only required in the NBA so we don't have it, just the buzzer.

The backboard doesn't light up for the shot clock.

Whether the clock was at 0 when the ball was in the air is irrelevant.

I wonder if the highlight video will show it? Very Happy

Yea, I knew I was going to invite scorn when I wrote that, but it was too late.

What I meant to say was, the buzzer never went off at all, which is unusual for a shot that close to 0/the buzzer. Yes, I know it just has to be out of his hand(s) before the buzzer, but usually the buzzer will go off once the shot clock reaches 0, regardless of where the ball is; not leaving the “shot in-time” decision to the shot clock operator (with whom I shared pregame pasta, but NOT BEER)!

UP's last field goal except for David Carr's tre was with 9:33 left in the game and the Pilots still win the game!


Great defensive effort. The sequence with 13 minutes left where we blocked 3 shots, stole the ball, and went down the court and drew the foul was inspirational.

There was also a basket at 8:11; Kevin Bailey I think. There were a couple good shots that rimmed out, and a couple wild shots. Biggest problem was terrible free throw shooting, missing two front ends of 1 + 1, and making only one of two a couple other times. 10 of 18 over all, and worse considering the 1 + 1 misses.
