This is called a hand shot
When one player grabs the ball after a missed shot in basketball it is called a rebound. The offensive orÊdefensive player can get a rebound.
I believe it's called a projectile.
I'm from Chicago, and have heard this term for over 25 years. We called it a crip' when I was young because 'anybody' should be able to make one; even a crippled person. Hence… the term crip', and in no way a shot at those persons who are handicapped.
so people don't think you made it by luck
By saying "glass".
The shoulder shot is the angle the camera gets of somebody's shoulder in the lower corner of the screen while we (the audience) can see the rest of the scene take place. It is… usually done when two people are talking. To view one person speaking, directors or dp's (director of photography) usually choose an over the shoulder camera shot to get the audience to get a feel of actually being there in the scene with the characters. It's very effective and used often in films. Try noticing how often the next movie you watch uses that type of camera angle
Out of bounds, same if it hits the very top or back of the backboard!
