The Houston Rockets ball screen handoff basketball play is a pretty simple play, but it works really well if you run it the right way. For the play to be successful the point guard coming off the ball screen must get penetration. This will make the defense have to suck in. At this point, the shooter will circle around for the handoff and an open pull up jump shot. Having the right basketball plays in your playbook can make all the difference in a close game.
