Well, handball involves a smaller ball that has more buoyancy. In handball, the objective is to hit the ball against the wall with your hand & so forth. In Basketball, you have a rather larger ball. In basketball you shoot the ball into the basketball net.

The rules apply differently depending on who you're playing with or you can make your own rules depending on how you like to play either rules. ( there are general rules to both )

Hope this helped :)
