No, they can't. They can hit the backboard or the rim and rebound it, but if the shot does not hit either of them, then it is considered a travel, or as others call it, a "self pass."

Does a player get credit for a rebound if a shot is missed at the buzzer in the NBA?

The offensive team is credited with a "team rebound" No individual player gets credit for a rebound but the offensive team is credited with a "team rebound." A team rebound is also given following a missed shot, if a personal foul is called before the rebound can be grabbed. It is also given to the defensive team if the ball goes out of bounds after a shot without anyone touching it, or to the team getting the ball if it glances off another player and out of bounds. Also the defensive team gets a team rebound if a shooter misses the rim entirely on the last free throw attempt in a sequence.

What is a team rebound in basketball?

A team rebound is awarded when no individual secures the rebound of a missed shot. The statistic has little meaning -- its existence is primarily to ensure that the total number of rebounds equals the total number of missed shots, despite the fact that some shots don't have what one would normally consider a rebound. Some examples: * The offensive team gets a team rebound when one of its players misses a shot at the buzzer. * The defense gets a team rebound when a missed shot goes out of bounds without touching a player, and when the last free throw attempt in a sequence misses the rim. * Either team can get credit for a team rebound when a missed shot goes out of bounds off a member of the other team.


In netball how do you defend a shot?

you need to stand 3 feet away from the player about to take the shot and lean over towards the ball, but make sure you do not come any closer then 3 feet otherwise you will get pulled up for obstruction. when the shooter is about to take the shot jump up as high as you can but maintain your 3 feet. it is rare you will get or tip the ball but it does put the player off. if the player misses be prepared for the rebound jump up and grab the ball in.


What is billiards rebound?

The term "rebound" is not a billiards term. However, a ball "bouncing" off a rail might be termed rebound to someone that is not a billiards player. The action off a rail is complex and the simple term used is "bank". The bank shot changes the balls direction, momentum, and rotational momentum so cannot be considered a simple rebound.
