When controlling the ball, the attacking team in basketball must follow many time regulations such as time to shoot the ball (24 seconds rule), time to put the ball into the opponent’s court (8 seconds), time to occupy position. favorable (3 seconds),… Specifically, according to the provisions of basketball rules set by FIBA (World Basketball Federation) for the content of 5×5, applied in domestic tournaments and professional basketball tournaments. As soon as the ball is in control, each team has a maximum of 24 seconds to throw into the opponent’s basket. If this time is up and the team in possession of the ball does not finish, control of the ball will go to the opponent.
When the ball is in his own half, the player has only 8 seconds to send the ball into the opponent’s half
Parallel to the 24-second rule is the 8-second rule to bring the ball to the opponent’s court. Accordingly, when the team in possession of the ball has the ball from their home position, they have up to 8 seconds to send the ball into the opponent’s half of the field. If after 8 seconds the ball is still in the home field, the team loses the ball. At the same time, after sending the ball to the defensive team’s court, if the ball returns to the home field, the attacking team will also lose the ball.

Besides the regulation on time to deploy the attack, basketball also has strict requirements on the time to occupy the position. Specifically, the 3-second rule requires that team members in control of the ball are not allowed to stay in the “limited area” (paint area) of the defending team for more than 3 seconds. In which, the limited area is defined as a rectangle near the basket column. This is considered a very convenient area to score and dispute the ball falling from unsuccessful shots. Therefore, this rule was introduced to limit the fact that players with good body shape “station” in hot spots and at the same time force the throwers to move continuously. If a player violates, the attacking team will lose control of the ball to the opponent’s hand.
Above the basketball board, there is always an electronic board showing the time of the attacking team
In addition to the above regulations, basketball also has requirements when enjoying free throws. Accordingly, the 5-second rule requires the free-throw player to have 5 seconds from the time of receiving the ball from the referee to make his shot. After this time, the free throw will not be counted even if the ball goes into the basket. 5 seconds is also the limit for a player to kick the ball in.
