In the video below, we show you one of the simplest, yet one of the most effective plays you can add to your arsenal! This backdoor play is guaranteed to get you an open layup against an aggressive man-to-man defense.
A few quick pointers to remember when you run this backdoor play:
- The guys setting screens have to sell that they’re trying to get the shooter open. They can’t let their men help in the middle of the floor
- The point guard has to start the action going right, and then go back to his left to sell that he is looking for the shooter.
- The wing that receives the ball has to sell that he wants it out on the wing before making his back-cut.
