Slips and backdoor basketball plays are great for keeping the defense honest. If you don’t make a defense pay for gambling and pressuring you, they will continue to do it the whole game. This will lead to turnovers or poor execution on your other sets and cause havoc to your offense. The best basketball offenses are able to read the defense and take what is given.
