Some shots go in, while others do not. Alec Burks' half-court heave against the San Antonio Spurs did neither.

With just seconds to go in the first quarter on Sunday, the Utah Jazz shooting guard attempted to attempt a buzzer-beating, half-court shot. It did not go well.

There's only one thing you can say at times like these: Oops. 

Do not fret, though, Sir Alec. We've all been here in some capacity, with the clock winding down, trying to handle a bacon grease- and butter-basted ball.

Sometimes, the darn thing just slips.
