Queston Du Jour

How many seconds does it take to advance a basketball 70′ while taking three dribbles, then making a pass, having a teammate dribble the ball, and making another pass before shooting?

    I’ll say that about 5-6 seconds would be the quickest this could be done … with highly skilled players.

    Here’s a better Q … why is this the “Questions du jour”?

    Last night’s Pistons / Magic game – this occurred at the end of the third quarter. I left out one important detail – the second pass was made by a Piston (not sure who) that was in the air for a shot and then decided to pass off to Chauncey Billups for the bucket. Definitely took longer than 5.1 seconds.

    I was surprised to see it actually didn’t take longer.

    Why don’t clock “malfunctions” ever happen on the road? Did anyone else see the clock stop this year in the Rutgers-Tennessee women’s game?

    I only saw replays. Summit’s comment after was a little surprising from her: “We found another way to win.”

    The interesting thing about the home/road question is that supposedly the NBA brings in clock operators from other cities for the playoffs. Last night’s clock operator works for the Timberwolves. But you’re right – rarely if ever does the visitor get the advantage.
