A last second shot is a time when it's acceptable to ball watch. As an off ball official, you're not really going to have to worry too much about screens and holds because everyone's attention is focused on the player with the ball and getting the shot up. Also, I want to be able to help my partner if he asks for help, or if he truly butchers the call.
Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.

Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
