Actually, given that he had a wide open teammate to his left, and plenty of time to pass it so his teammate could take a better quality shot... this isn't a very flattering "highlight" for Jimmer.

Totally fouled. No way he misses that unless he was absolutely mugged. He was fouled by all five guys on the other team at the same time.

Keep firing Jimmer!

Down 6 points with 5 seconds left would require an incredibly rare set of circumstances to tie, but the best always play for that incredibly rare event. This showed a rather low basketball IQ for Jimmer, I'm sad to say. Sorry Basketballogy, but your suggestion only seals a 3-point loss instead of a 6-point loss, if all goes well. With a pass to his teammate and even a made 3-pointer, no way there's time for another shot to tie the game. Even if Jimmer makes his circus shot, same result.

The ONLY POSSIBLE miracle scenario to tie and send this game to overtime is for Jimmer to take the foul at 3+ seconds, make 3 foul shots, and hopefully get one last shot in the time remaining. Probably would not have worked out, but isn't that one-in-a-million chance one reason we all watch to the end?

You are not the real Ernest T. Bass...as I've said before.
