Unfortunately, it didn't count.

At the end of the third quarter of the Rockets-Kings game last night, veteran center Marcus Camby threw the ball baseball-style from underneath his own basket at the end of the third quarter, draining the heave. He got the toss off about two-tenths of a second too late, though, and the basket was waved off. The Rockets managed to win the game in overtime, 113-106.

Camby's no-basket was shafted, coming in at No. 9 in the NBA's top 10 plays from last night. Who cares if it didn't count? You see that once every couple of years!

Among the shots topping Camby were five dunks, a Rodney Stuckey game-winning jumper, and a halfcourt shot (not full court) from Paul George that did count in the Pacers' win over Miami.
