Russian term or phrase: сверхдальние броски
Дебют заключительной четверти остался за гостями, у них опять пошли «трёхи» (к 34-й минуте они реализовали сверхдальние броски — 8/12).

This entire sentence seems impossible, but I am trying to get this term. So far I have:
"The first game for the tounament’s closing match’s quarter fell into the visiting team's hands, when they scored more 3-point shots, and at minute 34 they pumped passes to: 8/12."

Explanation:
And, I believe, you may simply use "three-pointers" instead of "3-point shots" above.

Probably, "by minute 34...". It's statistics of how good they were with their 3-pointers during 33 minutes of the game.

The Russian words mean literally "super-long-distance shots", but I'm not sure it sounds naturally. In fact, these are those incredible shots when they score throwing the ball over almost all the field.

Thank you Kirill, I have been using 3-pointers throughout and thought I would change a bit. Long distance shots, which is actually a 3-pointer, hmmm.

agree  Mikhail Kropotov: No Kirill, these are not incredible shots... It's sports writers trying to be witty :) The shots were simply long-distance, as you suggested to begin with :)

  -> that was what I thought - simply `long-distance shots' :)
