YOUR TEAM IS down by three points with 4.9 seconds left on the clock. You come up with a steal on the opposing team’s in-bounds pass, race toward the other end of the court, and throw up a last-second three-pointer to force overtime.

Check out how dumbfounded the announcers were left (via The Basketball Jones):
