Thanks Jim, I found the earlier thread, but still can't see how the clue gives the answer. Can you advise?

An alley is a way. Ooop()s if you nearly stumble, say.

Thanks chaps, I can see the cryptic now. Not sure I like the definition though. No internet definition I see mentions "encouragement" or "acrobat"...just defined as a basketball play. Heyho, musnt be too picky.
