How to use rattling in a sentence?

  1. The Blazers:

    You just want to see the ball go in. When you're missing shots, rattling in and out, and the ball is rolling off the rim, I think the easy thing to do is be like `I don't have it going,' and just go away from it and keep passing it, but when you're in a stretch like I am shooting the ball, I think it's important to jump into it, to get more aggressive and get yourself out of it.

  2. Teacher Saimoni Nainoca:
