Legal play, offensive player shoots over corner of backboard, successful basket

“This is an example of a legal field goal attempt. The offensive player, Rajon Rondo, attempts a shot from along the baseline, and the shot goes up and over the corner of the backboard. This is a legal field goal attempt as the shot went over the corner of the backboard and it did not pass through the imaginary rectangle that runs from the back of the backboard straight backwards. Again, this is a legal attempt and the field goal would be counted.”
