It's so consistent, I can only assume this is what they mean to do each time:
Fart around beyond the top of the key until there are 12 seconds left on the shotclock.
Struggle to get the ball to the guy you want to take the shot.
Frantically try to beat your man off the dribble (unsuccessfully) until there are 2 seconds left on the shot clock.
Launch an off balance or fall away jumper that has little chance of going in.
Don't get the rebound.
(mrs. noternie--who was a bit of a baller in her day--goes crazy when they hold the ball and let the clock run down. she yells at the tv every single time.)
