Trevor Booker's insane 'grandma shot' needs to be watched over and over again

The Utah Jazz forward’s incredible improvisation saw him score with 0.2 seconds on the shot clock.

ACCORDING TO THE NBA’s Trent Tucker Rule, there must be at least 0.3 seconds on the game or shot clock for a player to catch the ball and take a regular shot.

With that in mind, Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booking tried the unthinkable during the second quarter against Oklahoma City Thunder last night with this over-the-head, volleyball-style tap — referred to by the commentator as a ‘grandma shot’ — after receiving an inbound pass.

Thunder went on to win the game 99-94, however.
