Handoff basketball plays are a great way to get the defense to miss-communicate and break down defensively. Also if you have a great shooter this may be the only way to get them the ball if they are being denied. Sometimes a bad shot from a great player is better than a good shot from a poor player. This is a pretty basic basketball play, but it is up to the offense to be able to execute it the correct way to get a good look at the basket.

Play Goal: Get a shot for your best player or let them make a play for another teammate off of the handoff.
Play Tips: Shooter needs to get his shoulders squared when coming off of the handoff on the shot. Come shoulder to shoulder on the handoff and don’t let the defender squeeze through.
