If you are implying that the ball won't bounce vertically in real life, you are right probably 99.9999% of the time. This is very idealized where no air resistance, roll, or off-center is happing in this simulation. As for the physics, this is accurate. Momentum = mass * velocity. Momentum is converved. This is a very basic physics concept.

A more massive object (basketball) moving at a constant velocity will push a less massive object (baseball, tennis ball, or Tinker's toy) at a faster speed. A less massive object (bowling ball) moving at a constant velocity will push a more massive object (iron ball) at a slower speed.
