Basketball is a team sport. Two teams of five players each try to score points by shooting a ball through a hoop elevated 10 feet above the ground. The game is played on a rectangular floor called the court, and there is a hoop at each end. Basketball games open with what is called a jump ball. The Magic take the court charged and ready to go at the first game whistle and leap into action as soon as the ball is tossed into the air. During basketball games, players compete for control over a single basketball. The ball is moved down the court toward the basket by passing or dribbling. The team with the ball is called the offense. The team without the ball is called the defense. Each team has an opportunity to play both offence and defense during the game. Players try to steal the ball, contest shots, steal and deflect passes, and garner rebounds in order to gain possession of the ball and take an offensive lead against the other team.

The ball is constantly passed from one player to another, dribbled back and forth on the court and shot into the air in attempt to score a basket.
