This basketball play is great because the ball is going to touch all five players hands and it is going to get swung from side to side. The goal is to get a good look in the post or to get a shot off of the down screen for the shooter. Ball movement can really open up great shots for your team and anytime the ball moves quickly from side to side it is a good action.
