When a player is feeling it and shooting the basketball lights out, he/she doesn’t need much space or time to get their shot off. This means that you need to start running everything through them. This is a pretty simple basketball play, but because the shooter is feeling it, it is a good play. The reason that you are going to use a handoff action is because the shooter is probably going to be denied by the defense. It also important that the screener spaces or rolls after the screen, because they could be the one open for the shot if the ball handler dumps the ball off to them.
