A game of basketball starts with what is called a 'jump ball'. Two players will stand in the circle at the center of the court. One of the referees will toss the ball up in the air between the two players. They will jump up and try to tip the ball to one of their teammates, And then shoot to the basket, If its possible to win. :)
