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, #10 in the blue uniform, pushes his opponent into the shooter. Since the 3 point field goal attempt was unsuccessful, the shooter is awarded three free throws. Note that had the 3 point field goal been successful, the offensive player who was pushed would shoot one additional free throw to complete a potential four-point play.
