The maker of “Bull Durham” (writer-director Ron Sheltonmoves from baseball to street basketball in this spirited comedy. Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes are an adversarial, salt-and-pepper team who hustle money on the courts of Los Angeles.

While that setup is not especially original, crisply shot hoop sequences, hilarious dialogue and Rosie Perez’s inspired turn as Harrelson’s girlfriend help this film score. Rated R.
