Clock started in error on throw in

Team A has the ball for a sideline throw-in with 0.1 (one tenth) of a second on the clock. Thrower A1 throws the ball toward the basket in hopes of a tip-in. The ball strikes the lower corner of the backboard and rebounds up the lane. Right after the ball hits the backboard, the horn sounds. There was no legal touching so the clock should not have started.

How would you proceed in this situation by rule? I didn't have any luck searching the casebook. Thanks.

Put .1 back on the clock and throw the ball in from the original spot.
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.

First, face the scorer, put your hands in front of you with palms up, and then give the "WTF" look.

Then, the above.

If team A is behind by two points, don't do anything. Game over.
