Check shoulders to recognize space/time.

Add in another pass where player 2 checking to receive ball from player 1 returns pass to player 1, spins away and is played in to another target by player 1

If return pass is not easy, player 1 should dribble to change attacking picture and then play the pass. Player 2 keeps moving and makes himself available.
