Boston Celtics' Jae Crowder Makes Full-Court Basket, Shot Doesn't Count (Video)

Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder sank a full-court shot on Nov. 4 against the Indiana Pacers, but the amazing hoop did not count (video below).

Crowder was throwing an inbounds pass to the other end of the court, where teammate Jared Sullinger waited with only 1.1 seconds before halftime, reports the New York Daily News.

However, the ball went into the basket -- and was ruled a turnover.

Yahoo! Sports notes that an inbounds pass has to touch a player on the court before it is considered a live ball per NBA rules.

If the basket had counted, the Celtics would have been credited three points; instead, they lost by two with a final score of 100-98.
