If you want to learn how to beat your defender one of the best things you can do is to learn some different setups and we teach you a couple different ways to do this with the tips in this video. One of the best ways to set up your defender is to hit a couple of jump shots earlier in the game so they have a reason to play you more closely. The closer your defender is, the easier it will be to beat him off the dribble, also if you've hit a few shots earlier in the game your shot fakes and hesitations will be much more effective. That's one of the biggest tips I can give for beating defenders. During your shot fake or hesitation you may be able to get your defender to move towards you to try to block your shot, which is a perfect time to use their momentum against them and drive to the basket.
