What Is The Definition Of Power Dribble In Basketball?

1. A power dribble is an exception to the illegal dribble rule. Players may only use this play once after receiving a pass in the lane. The player slams the ball down with both hands before reclaiming it. 

A power dribble helps the player (typically a center or power forward) set a secure stance and push back defending players. It is an exception to the illegal dribble rule because touching the ball with both hands after it bounces ends the dribble.
