SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz forward Royce O’Neale sunk an impressive shot that would’ve been a highlight in any game of H.O.R.S.E. Unfortunately for the Jazz forward, his shot against the Indiana Pacers didn’t count.
The Jazz hosted the Pacers at Vivint Arena on Thursday, November 11.
With 5:23 left in the third quarter, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell rebounded a miss by the Pacers and pushed the ball ahead to O’Neale.
The fast break was halted when Indiana’s Justin Holiday committed a foul to stop the play.
After the whistle, O’Neale floated the ball high in the air and towards the hoop.
Gravity pulled the forward’s underhand shot down and off the glass before the ball went through the cylinder.
If this counted 😱
