Şervan Kurdî
Meaning of a statement What does the writer really want to say here? "You might get called for an offensive foul, traveling, tied up for a held ball, being over and back, or 5 seconds, but we do not want any fumble that leads to a layup or to us chasing a player from behind." The text is about basketball. Thanks a lot in advance

In this case a fumble is a mistake that can cause a turnover. A turnover is when you give the other team the ball when you don't want to. Sometimes fumbles are recovered by your own team mates, but a turnover towards the end of the game can cause you to loose the game.
