8 seconds refer to FIBA, so I'll give the relative rules.

The count begins when there is player control in the court; if the ball is deflected out of bounds (or if play is stopped because of an injury to a player of the team in control) the count is not reset: the official will show the number of seconds remaining before handing the ball for the throw-in. The same happens if there is a held ball and the AP favors the same team. However, if we are in the last two minutes of regulation or overtime and the team in control is granted a time out, the throw-in will be at the division line and, if the ball is passed in the back court, there will be a new 8 second count.

There's no possibility to grant a time out during a live ball.
