A bad defender will almost always relax once his man gives up the ball. This basketball play is designed to take advantage of this by having the PG receive a handoff from the high post. If the handoff is not there, then the point guard simply cuts through and you are in your offense. Don’t be a robot and be ready to play out of the handoff.

Play Goal: Make the PG’s defender pay for relaxing once the ball is given up. Look for the handoff for a quick bucket or get right into the offense if the first handoff isn’t there.
Play Tips: Point guard must take his man away from the handoff and the cut hard to get the handoff. If nothing is there just play out of the offense.
