Exactly how they drew it up?
We'll get to the finish of the Philadelphia-Atlanta game in just a second but we couldn't ignore this play during the third quarter.
Falling out of bounds, Atlanta's Skylar Mays threw up a tough jump shot from behind the backboard. The attempt was offline....or was it an attempt?
