On this play, the defensive player (Red-7) commits a blocking foul.
White-5 receives a “kick out pass” on the perimeter and begins a drive to the basket. Red-7, in an attempt to ‘draw’ an offensive foul on White-5, is moving towards White-5 when contact occurs between the two players. Red-7 initiates the contact, causing both players fall to the floor.
Red-7 does not establish a legal guarding position in the path of the White-5. Moreover, Red-7 does not beat the offensive player to the spot and the contact is made from the side. This is a defensive foul for blocking.
The defender is permitted to establish his legal guarding position in the path of a dribbler, thus “beating him to the spot.” To get into a legal position, the defender needs to establish himself in the path of the offensive player before contact is made.
