SDH Presents Basketball Dribbling Drills - Point Guard Pick Splitting


This is a great dribbling drill for point guards and perimeter players in general, and it's especially helpful who are looking to add options to their pick and roll play and all you need is 2 cones to do it. In this drill you'll develop the ability to come off of a screen and then quickly change directions to beat both your defender and your teammates defender in two quick dribbles. The key to making it effective is to make your change of direction quick and precise, while keeping your body behind the basketball after your crossover dribble to avoid your original defender getting a hand on the ball from behind. The more your practice this drill the more you'll get the feel for the angle you need to move at and the body positioning required to split both defenders off of the pick.

SDH Presents a Basketball Move to Get Past Defenders Tutorial


The behind the back intro between the legs combo is one of those basketball moves that can be used in a variety of game situations to get past defenders. The great part about this move is that it can be executed on the fast break and also in the half court set offense. A key point to keep in mind with the behind the back is that there are two ways to execute the move - you can either do it more on the move and pushing the ball out, or you can do it from more of a quick set stance and doing a pound dribble. Each type of behind the back dribble has it's advantages, but if you execute the entire combo correctly you should have great protection over the basketball at all times, while allowing you to get past your defender. That's a true win-win situation when you can effectively move past your defender without jeopardizing your protection over the basketball. 

It is highly suggested you get a bunch of repetitions in of this move to become comfortable with executing it properly and you can start breaking ankles, getting past defenders and getting to the rim more easily. Let us know what you think of this combo basketball move to get past defenders in the comments below!  Catch more great helpful videos to help perfect your game and watch them being done in practice right here on +Slap Dog HoopsAlso, please be kind enough to share this post by simply clicking the Facebook, Twitter, G+, and Pinterest buttons below.  It would be greatly appreciated; Thanks!
