New Orleans Hornets guard Xavier Henry simply failed to realize how much time he had before letting this shot go. How else do you explain it?
Leading 86-68 with time winding down in the third quarter, Henry picked off an errant pass from a Philadelphia 76ers, and frantically launched the ball toward the basket in hopes of beating the clock.
As you can see, the ball falls well shy of its intended target. And Henry is left with a blooper his teammates aren't soon to forget.
The look on Hornets head coach Monty Williams after the play says it all.
New Orleans went on to win 111-99.
