This handoff basketball play is out of the horns set and since the shooter is getting a down screen from the other big before coming off of the handoff it is basically a double screen for the shooter. The first screener must go hit the shooters defender so that the hand off man can clean him up and the shooter will be wide open after that. Also, the player coming off the hand off needs to set his/her defender up first before using the hand off-screen, this is essential for the play to work.
