Sometimes the best things that happen in life (or in this case, basketball games) come in the form of happy accidents.
In this game, a man seems to be attempting to shoot the ball from the distance. In reality, he is passing the ball to his teammate. His teammate, however, thought he was gonna shoot, and so he wasn’t able to catch the ball properly. Luckily, when he saw the ball coming up to him, he put up his hands to prevent the ball from hitting his face, which made the ball fly towards and into the basket.
