  • Don't let your opponent take free jump shots. Jump towards him, try to block the throw.
  • If the defending side is already waiting for your throw and gathering players in your path, try to deceive the opponent by changing the direction of the attack.
  • Use the Pick & Roll tactic to get your tall center into position.
  • Make your way with the ball by passing quickly between two opposing players, then either pass the ball to a teammate or look for the next opportunity to get ahead yourself.
