"gancio"
Explanation:
Spiegazione trovata su un fantastico monolingue, che riporto:
"a jumping one-hand shot in basketball made off the backboard from close under the basket". Che ne dici di "gancio" o "gancio-cielo" come diceva il caro vecchio Dan Peterson?

Dallas-Seattle
Ancora fantastico Gary Payton, 28 punti, compresi i due in layup che hanno spezzato la partita. Dopo il canestro del +2 del Guanto, la guardia rookie Desmond Mason stoppa il tiro di Bradley (ben oltre i 2.20!).

Orlando-New York
I Magic sbagliano gli ultimi 12 tiri dal campo, e Childs li punisce segnando in layup a 12 secondi dalla fine, dando l'unico, ma decisivo vantaggio ai Knicks. Orlando ancora senza Hill, New York ancora senza Camby.

tiro da sotto canestro (rimbalzato sul tabellone); tiro ravvicinato sul tabellone


Explanation:
Per una volta lo Zanichelli comprende un termine abbastanza "slang". Confermo che si usa moltissimo anche "layup". Non sarei daccordo sull'uso di "gancio" perché quello è un tiro da più lontano, un po' a pallonetto, il tipico "hook-shot".

Buona partita,

Floriana
