WOW!! My heart almost stopped beating there at the end! Great gut check win!
Chandler's play was a good play only because there were no Bucks guards behind the 3-point line.
Chandler did not know that Felton was the only person back there, he was just making a good hustle play.
But it only worked because there were no Bucks back there.
Had there been a Buck over there, like one should have been based on basketball 101, Chandler would have given him a head start with that tip, and then you and Steve Martin would be criticizing Chandler for tipping it instead of catching it.
In other words, you're letting Steve Martin's enthusiasm get to you. And his enthusiasm is based on what happened instead of what would typically happen. In most situations, somebody on the other team would have been over there, and it won't be a good play.
Chandler made a good play because he hustled, but the play only worked because not one Buck stayed behind the three point line...again, not something that Chandler was even aware of in the heat of the action.
In summary, the Bobcats got lucky, but that's what happens sometimes when you hustle.
His hustle is to be praised, but in most cases, that tip would be no better than 50/50 in terms of which team comes up with it.

Dave Hanners is a really likeable guy. thanks coach
With about 3 seconds left. Even if there was a Buck somewhat in the area, the ball being knocked away drains enough clock to make them scoring near impossible.... He couldn't have just done a normal reb, he didn't have the position. He did exactly what he should have done. And more importantly
HOW THE HELL DO YOU KNOW IF CHANDLER KNEW WHO WAS IN THE BACK COURT? WHY ARE YOU ASSUMING THINGS AND WHY CANT YOU JUST BE HAPPY WITH ANYTHING?!
uhh its pretty obvious that the tip was the correct play there with the clock that low. the bucks whole game was dependent on getting that rebound why wouldnt they be under there
