Do you know that your passing accuracy controls shooting accuracy? The more accurate the pass, the more accurate and quicker the shot will be.
Join PGC Director Tyler Coston, as he shares 3 easy ways to get more assists.
How To Get More Assists
1. Aim Small, Miss Small
When in a game don’t pass to a person. Pick a small and specific target and you will find your passing accuracy drastically improves.
2. Pivot Out of Pressure
When attacking the basket, your teammates defender will shift over to stop you. Instead of passing to your teammate right away, stop and pivot to put the defender on your back. Now you have an open passing lane to your teammate.
3. Ball Fake & Grimace
When you put emphasis into your ball fake you are more likely to move defenders. Most players get to the end of their dribble and immediately pass to open players. We actually want to create more time at the end of our dribble. It takes a split second longer to ball fake & grimace away from where you want to pass the ball to get the defense to move. This will cause the defense to stand up, move, change their eyes before you make the pass to the open player to get their shot off.

THINK THE GAME
Join PGC Basketball and discover how to become a playmaker, lead your team, and run the show.
When players ask me what they can do to look special, they are really asking me how they can get more shots within their offense. They tend to dismiss this crucial answer, “Identify what your opponent does poorly, expose that, and you will stand out.” What do the majority of players do poorly? Execute their transition defense well.
But when you shift the way you think, the way you play begins to change. Playing this way is hard. It takes superior conditioning & mental toughness. But never forget: Everything worth having is on the other side of hard.
Basketball isn’t like football. You must be able to play on both sides of the ball if you want to stay on the court and excel. Here’s the good news. Tall or short, strong or weak, quick or slow, lockdown defenders are made, not born.
Here are the four keys to becoming a lockdown defender that I wish I would have known while I was still playing.
