    [Listening] Help with clips from nba broadcast

    I wrote down words I heard in each clip. Could anyone help me complete the full sentences?

    0125.mp3
    rebound, Shaq, turn around jumper

    0145.mp3
    get the ball loose, slam dunk by Shaq, go up

    0306.mp3
    fake the pass, what a nice rotation and nice release and follow through

    0325.mp3
    bank shot, going to the hole, nice play

    The sound quality is poor. I had to wear noise-cancelling headphones to make it out.

    0125

    [Somebody, goaf?] rebounds off to Shaq; that might go from four feet; it does; turn-around jumper ..


    0145

    They give the ball to van Ecktel; [something or somebody] underneath for the slam dunk by Shaq.

    0306

    Break; Kobe faked the pass; the defender went for the pass; I'll tell you who this car(?) this one is Kobe; Kobe s... [somebody] this in the air; brings it out to Kobe; his three-pointer on the way is good; what a nice rotation etc.

    0325

    Gordon, now he advances to the front court; and that is Kobe Bryant; nice! Bounce underneath to Rook; that's a heck of a pass; and Rook scores on a bank shot going to the hole.

    That's my final version -- the best I can do.

    Thanks very much. It seems I should choose a better material for learning next time.

    Yes, I think you should. The game is moving rapidly and the situation changes from second to second. The announcers have to speak quickly. They may muff a word here and there, and even native speakers nay fail to hear something. But in the context of a basketball game that is not important.
