There are three ways to creating space off the dribble.
Step one is to simply go fast north and south. Your goal is to go right towards the basket and make the defender believe that you’re driving in for a lay-up. A hard, quick move to the basket will cause the defender to turn his hips to sprint in an attempt to cut you off. Meanwhile, you quickly stop and pop up a shot as he flies by. This move is simple, but very effective.
Begin the same way on step one, but make a quick dribble move such as going between the legs or behind the back, or a simple cross over. Note: You won’t be able to get to step two if you don’t perform step one at full speed.
Perform steps one and two, and as the defender works to recover to contest your shot, take a hard look at the basket. You want to make your opponent think you are going to shoot, then quickly change directions and go around the defender, to hit a pull-up jumper or drive it in for a simple layup.
This video will show you what these moves look like when you put all the steps together.
