2014-15 NBA Rule Change[edit]

Starting in the 2014-15 season[1], the shot clock no longer resets to 5 seconds on a jump ball induced by the defense. (talk) 04:40, 7 October 2015 (UTC)


Please, some one with a greater knowledge of basketball expand on this article and link it to basketball and NBA. Its impact on the game is tremendous; without it, the NBA might not exist. Oh, as far as the "other sports" line, I may have made that up. Do other sports use a shot clock? --Feitclub 17:59, Sep 20, 2004 (UTC)

I removed the line about shot clock criticism due to intentional fouling. This statement is inaccurate because the shot clock resets on team fouls in the college game and I believe is now reset to 14 or 15 seconds (if the shot clock was down to fewer than 14-15 seconds) in the NBA.

The NBA resets the shot clock to 14 seconds after fouls if less than 14 is showing and the foul does not result in a turnover or free throw.

Other sports that use a shot clock include water polo and lacrosse (though I'm not sure if it universally used in the latter).

In the footnote at the bottom of the page, "averaged an average" should be changed to "scored an average" or something similar to get rid of the redundancy.-- 07:29, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Australian Rules Football shot clock?[edit]

The introduction says that a shot clock is used in "professional Australian rules football." I occasionally watch AFL matches on TV, and have never seen a shot clock used. I also don't believe there is a professional AFL; AFAIK, all players are semiprofessional, with 9-to-5 jobs during the week. Does anyone have more information about this?

There absolute is an AFL "shot clock", but it's only used on set shots. It is not a shot clock in the traditional sense though, and is closer to penalties for stalling in association football. -- Alyas Grey : talk 00:43, 13 January 2012 (UTC)


Has anyone got a reference for snooker having a shot clock? I've not seen one and there's no length of time suggested in the table at the bottom of the article. Rikkiprince (talk) 17:43, 30 July 2012 (UTC)


I've noticed that the article has a chart summing up the lengths of the shot clock. The chart does reference the NFHS as having a 30 second shot clock in some states. I'm about to edit it so NFHS is replaced with United States high school.

I want to make the reason for this edit known. The NFHS rules, as of this time, does not use a shot clock. States that do utilize the shot clock are ineligible to serve on the national rules committee. So, to say that the NFHS rule is 30 seconds is inaccurate. However, some states do use that rule, and it's important to note that. So I do think that this labeling is a good compromise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:55, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
