The reason for the fake handoff action is to get the weak side defenders to focus on the ball, and then not be able to extend and help out on the double screen. So really focus on selling the fake handoff and then set good screens for the shooter coming off for the shot. This is a great basketball play to run for a shooter that is having trouble getting his shot off.

Play Goal: Sell the fake handoff and then hit the shooter coming off the double screen.
Play Tips: Must sell the fake handoff action to get the defense to focus on the ball instead of extending and helping on the double screen. Don’t make the shooter wait on the pass, pass him the ball as soon as he comes off the screens.
