There is no question of an unsportsmanlike foul, but the case is on the verge of a disqualifying foul.
Who is primarily responsible to call this shot clock violation? The Lead and Trail referees must monitor the play on the strong side, the center referee's duty is also to judge cases near the ring (goaltending and basket interference), as well as shot clock violations.
The player setting the screen gives time and distance to the screened player. Legal screen. Correct no call.
When Yellow 5 jumps the defensive player is not on the landing spot, he is moving forward. Defensive foul. The act of shootingstarts later, therefore the basket shall not count.
Act of shooting
The act of shooting has started when the defensive player commits the foul. Basket shall count.
Blocking a shot
Black 8 is basically vertical and the contact with him is marginal. Black 13 clearly taps the ball. Correct decison by the referee: no foul, out-of-bounds.
FIBA Tough Calls: Black 15 finishes his dribble and catches the ball with both feet on the floor. When he lifts his right foot, his left foot becomes his pivot foot.

This is a travelling violation; the basket shall not count and the Yellow team shall be awarded a throw-in from the free throw line extended.
FIBA Tough Calls: White 23 gained control of the ball with his right foot on the floor. The first step occurred when he put his left foot on the floor and the second step occurred when he put his right foot on the floor again.

FIBA Tough Calls: During a Blue team offense, Blue 45 and Yellow 5 contest a high post situation and as Blue 45 backs down to the basket defender Yellow 5 falls to the floor and is given a technical foul for flopping. Even with contact from Blue 45, defender Yellow 5 had an unstable position but exaggerates the reaction despite some holding of his shirt by Blue 45, missed by the Lead official who was late to his position.
White 1 and Blue 1 jump for the rebound, however the leg of White 1 is extending from his cylinder and Blue 1 falls over this leg. This is not a marginal contact as it causes a significant disadvantage to Blue1. Personal foul against white 1.
FIBA Tough Calls: The grabbing of the rim by White 24 made the whole backstop unit vibrate, thus causing the ball to enter the basket in the judgement of the referee. The basket shall not count.
FIBA Tough calls: White 4 was moving when he screened Green 5. The ball shall be awarded to the Green team for a throw-in from the place closest to where the foul occurred.

FIBA Tough Calls: White 15 created an illegal contact on his defender by holding (clamping) his arm.
FIBA Tough Calls: Incorrect decision from the referees. White 4 set a screen on a moving opponent without the ball without allowing him enough time and distance to stop or change his direction. An offensive foul should have been called and the ball awarded to the Red team for a throw-in.

OBRI 30-9: Example: A1 is standing with both feet in the backcourt close to the centre line, when A1 bounce-passes the ball to A2 who is also standing with both feet in the backcourt close to the centre line. During the pass, the ball touches the team A frontcourt before A2 touches it.
Interpretation: This is not a backcourt violation by team A as no team A player with the ball was in the frontcourt. However, the 8-second period shall be stopped when the ball touched the team A frontcourt. A new 8-second period shall start as soon as A2 touches the ball in the backcourt.
Act of shooting
Black 78 picks up the ball and starts his act of shooting when he is fouled. Then he takes his 2 steps legally (but a little slowly) and scores. The basket should count and 1 free trow is the correct decision.

FIBA Tough Calls: Incorrect decision from the referees. White 0 gained the control of the ball, allowing the ball to rest in his hand, while his left foot was touching the floor (the so-called step 0 or gathering step), so the first step occurred when his right foot touched the floor and the second step occurred when his left foot touched the floor again. However, his right foot touched the floor again before releasing the ball for the lay-up. This is a travelling violation.
Finishing the dribble the player stops so that he uses his left foot as pivot foot. However after a while he steps with his left foot in order to have a scoring chance. This move is travelling.
When Red 9 picks up the ball his right foot is on the floor. Then he jumps a bit and lands first on the right foot again. This is not legal, travelling.
FIBA Tough Calls: Red 96 gained the control of the ball, allowing the ball to rest in his hand, while his left foot was touching the floor (the so-called step 0 or gathering step), so the first step occurred when his right foot touched the floor and the second step occurred when his left foot touched the floor again. Legal play.
Although the contact is accidental the shooter's knee is out of his cylinder and causes painful contact. The defensive player legally jumps vertical therefore the offensive player is responsible for the contact which cannot be considered marginal. The ball is still in the hand of the shooter when contact occurs. Offensive foul - no basket.

Unsportsmanlike (fast break)

What time should be on the shot clock at the throw in?
