Why do they call timeouts in a basketball game?

Coaches or players call timeouts for several reasons. One common reason to call a timeout is to change the momentum of the game. If an opposing player is getting in three-pointer after three-pointer, you might want to call a timeout and hope it disrupts his hot streak. Another reason is to substitute players in. When you want to substitute a player in, the player won't be able to go in until game play stops. Timeouts can do stop a game. Also, another reason to call a timeout is for the coach to tell the players something he wants to say. For example, a coach might call a timeout to tell the players to stop being weak on defense, or to draw up a play when the game is on the line.
