Having a few handoff plays in our arsenal adds versatility...only to the extent that the players use the tools well.
Left, basic DH with downhill drive for 3. Right, DHO with second screen into PnR. Weak side action keeps defenders occupied.
Conversely, the dribble handoff may be a distraction from action on the weak side.
Left, SLOB, fake handoff into drive. Right, fake DHO with hammer action as the weak side becomes the action focus.
DHO (right) with staggered screens on the weak side.
