Great defenders will find gaps and put the offense in zones of inefficiencies. They play the odds and make it very difficult for a good offense to have success. In this week’s video, PGC Director Matt McLeod breaks down three things you can do to become a Lock Down Defender:
1. Take Away Two
Challenge the offense to go to their left or weak side. To do this, get in their bubble to take away their shot and ability to drive right.
2. Battle for the 3rd
Now, the only option is for the offense to drive left. When they do, turn your hips and sprint down to protect the basket.
3. Leave a Reactionary Gap
Doing this will create a gap between you and the offense. The offense will often react by stopping the drive to shoot. The most inefficient shot in the game of basketball is the pull up jumper from 12′-15′.
Join us at a PGC course this summer and discover how to stop players that are bigger, faster and stronger.
