Transition basketball plays are great for getting the game pace sped up, but they are also important because they are usually easy baskets. If you are forced to try and score the basketball in the half court every time, you are going to have to go against a set defense. Scoring in transition allows you to get baskets before the defense is all the way set. It can also be very discouraging for the other team if you are able to go on a quick 6-0 run.
