Backdoor Basketball Plays

Backdoor Basketball Plays

 

As a basketball coach, you always want to make sure that you have a couple of backdoor basketball plays in your playbook. There are several reasons why, but primarily, they will provide easy scoring opportunities and help keep a pressure defense honest.

If you are playing against a pressure defense that is trying to get up in your team and get in the passing lanes, it is hard to run offense. However, if you score on a few backdoor layups or dunks, then the defense will back off a little bit, and it will be easier to run your other sets.

Every one of these basketball plays comes with a video of the play and text explaining what to look for when executing the play. This will allow you to run the play with your team the correct way.

 

 

Executing Backdoor Basketball Plays

You need to emphasize a few focus points with your players when they run a backdoor play. The first thing that needs to be taught and emphasized is setting up the defender before the player uses the backdoor cut. When you watch these backdoor plays, you will recognize that the player first sells that they will come up to receive the pass before quickly and sharply cutting backdoor. The cutter must first sell the defender.

The second teaching point falls onto the player making the backdoor pass. A backdoor pass is almost always going to be a bounce pass or a lob pass, and it needs to be out in front of the player receiving the pass. Just like a quarterback in football leads their receiver with the pass, the passer needs to lead the cutter. If the ball is behind the receiver, there is a chance that their defender will break up the pass.
