Jeremy Evans Catches Up to Alley-Oop Tossed When He Was Behind 3-Point Line

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterApril 2, 2013

Apparently, you can pass the ball from just about anywhere on the court and Jeremy Evans will catch it. 

In fact, if you want to toss an alley-oop to the Jazz player, I would suggest passing the ball when he is at the three-point line. If you wait any longer, he may just leap past the hoop before the ball gets there. 

Yahoo! Sports spotted one of the more memorable plays from the waning moments of the NBA regular season. 

As reported, the streaking Jazz were taking on the Portland Trail Blazers and were already enjoying a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter when Ty Corbin decided to get Evans some playing time. 

It didn't take long for him to show what he could do on the court in what was pretty much garbage time. With a little over two minutes to go and a 110-95 lead, Jamaal Tinsley had the mind to toss an alley-oop to his teammate. 

The remarkable thing is he tossed it when Evans was all the way at the three-point line. I would imagine some fans in attendance were wondering who Tinsley might be passing to, and that's when Evans comes streaking through like The Flash dressed in Jazz colors. 

Amazing? Yes. But look again and you will notice Tinsley tosses a no-look pass to his teammate who is essentially right next to him as they sprint down on a fast break. 

There is team chemistry and then there is whatever these two guys have. As Yahoo! Sports notes, Evans hasn't logged a great amount of minutes, but we really hope that changes, because we would love to see what this duo has in store for a sequel.
