yes he can. when the ball touches the defender possesion switches over to the opposing team witch allows the player the ability to regain the ball and continue on dribbling. though the defender could steal that ball.

WORD TO THE WISE: most Basketball players will not turn their back on the ball, and throwing the ball at a defender facing you can result in a technical foul.
