Best Answer

A Basketball player typically attempts a half court shot towards the end of a quarter, when a player only has a few moments to either take or shot or let the clock run down to the end. Often a player cannot travel more than half the distance up the court, so must take a shot from half court because the clock is running down, and play will stop.
