The idea behind these types of basketball plays is to get the defense to focus on the handoff action and then over help. This will get that defender out of position, and when they get back screened they won’t be able to recover in time, which will end up in a wide up layup or dunk at the basket. For this play to work though, it is important that the handoff is sold, and then that the back screen is on time.

Play Tips: Make sure that the person receiving the handoff is a good scorer which requires the help of the defense, also make sure that the ball gets swung right away or the timing will be off.
