The screen when set effectively will always create some problems in a defense. This will allow a brief opportunity to take an open shot. See how we do it in this video.

Crossover and Jump Shot Basketball Move

The dribble known as the crossover and jump shot is a basketball move that has been used for several years now by NBA basketball shooters who are good handling the ball. In this video I show some of the subtle ways you can make this move work for you.

 

Use the Crossover Dribble to Set Up the Defender

A good crossover dribble is a great way to get your basketball jump shot off, but you have to not only be a great shooter but know how to handle the ball with either hand flawlessly. It is really just a simple change of direction move, and what to do after the crossover as you’ll see in my video you won’t just automatically go into a shot or drive. With every great basketball move the idea is to read the defender and have a move to counteract the way he reacts to your move.

As I demonstrate in the video tutorial you can simply go up for an uncontested jump shot, drive to the basket if the defender is out of position and the lane is open, or do a double crossover. Many players that are good with the ball use this move to show off their basketball moves. That is not what the crossover is designed to do. It really is an efficient way to get the defender off-balance, and then make you move. When done right it is very efficient, and when done wrong it kills an offense. Watch the video as I demonstrate.
