Defensive Foul, defender pushes opponent into shooter

This is an example of an off ball defensive foul that occurs while a separate offensive player with the ball is in the act of shooting. A foul in the act of shooting is assessed when a defensive player causes an off ball offensive player to make contact with an offensive player who is attempting a field goal attempt. On this play, the defensive player, #5 in the dark uniform, pushes his opponent into the shooter. Since the field goal was successful, the offensive player who was pushed would shoot one additional free throw to complete a potential three-point play. Note that had the field goal attempt been unsuccessful, the shooter would be awarded two free throws.
