VIDEO: Luis Scola throws the ball off Paul Pierce for the win
With .04 left, the Pacers just needed to touch the ball. But Luis Scola had other ideas.
The Pacers were up just one point vs. the Nets after a furious comeback by Brooklyn. They needed to just inbound the ball with .04 seconds remaining. As soon as it touched a player, the clock would expire. Brooklyn would have to intercept and shoot immediately, a la Derek Fisher to get a shot up for the win.
But funny thing about that rule. It doesn't matter who the ball touches. As Luis Scola demonstrated in a Pacers win.
Let's see that again.
