One of the most important jobs as a Guard is to get back on defense. This means never getting "sucked" in too deep, allowing for easy buckets in transition. Usually the Point Guard is responsible for getting back, but if the Point Guard penetrates the defense, it is then the Shooting Gaurd who is responsible for protecting the basket against the fast break. Good communication is key. Not doing so will lead to uncontested points for the opposing team.
