White Men Can't Jump (1992)
The dialogue is excellent, as fast paced and direct as an actual basketball play. It slows a little in the last act (when the 'sports movie' parts are used) but by that stage both characters are so well-defined that it's less of a problem than it would've been had it been placed earlier in the journey.
Besides the duo, Rosie Perez is also excellent. I haven't watched many films with Snipes in, but I'm willing to bet that he didn't ever top his work here.
