Hi everyone, this is cc. The purpose of defense is to reduce the scoring efficiency of offensive players, which can mainly be reflected in the form of steals, blocks, etc. If defensive players often use "gambling" steals to brush data, it means that the player's defensive effect is not good, which is a performance of insufficient defensive experience. Because the effect of "gambling" steals outweighs the benefits, it cannot achieve the goal of reducing the opponent's scoring efficiency. "Gambling" steals: As the name suggests, the bargaining chip steals at the cost of losing the defensive position and "losing position". If the steal is successful, the ball can be converted to form an opportunity for a defensive counterattack and fast break. If the steal fails, you will lose your defensive position, causing the offensive player to be unguarded, and the opponent's scoring efficiency will be greatly improved. Today, Hoy taught everyone how to steal correctly through this video, creating opportunities for defensive counterattacks and fast breaks. First of all, let’s talk about the defensive posture. When facing offensive players with the ball, you should maintain a low center of gravity and always be prepared to accelerate the movement and follow the defense; open your hands and extend the defensive range on both sides with the help of arm span, delaying the attacking player’s speed of dribbling breakthrough. ; Straighten your back, keep your head, knees and feet on the same level, keep your body balanced and stable, so that your defense is not easy to lose position.
Let's talk about the timing of steals. First, when the defensive player receives the ball, the offensive player should be given enough space to pass and receive the ball. Try not to press the receiver, block the pass, and kill the opponent's idea of passing the ball. It should adopt a regional defense within the controllable range, and observe the passing intention of the ball holder, and wait for the opponent to pass the ball. In the moment of passing the ball, the defensive player faces an uncontrolled basketball in the air, and must decisively choose the forward pounce method and engage in physical confrontation with the receiver to complete the steal.
The second is to defend the frontal dribble. When the offensive player dribbles the ball frontally, the defensive player also gives the opponent enough dribble space and will not rush to try to steal the ball. Instead, wait for the opponent's dribble to reach its defensive range. At the moment when the offensive player changes direction, the defensive player should maintain a stable center of gravity and only reach out to destroy the dribble when facing a controlled basketball. If the dribble is successfully disrupted and the basketball loses control, the defensive player will rush forward to grab possession of the ball. On the contrary, the dribble is not destroyed, and the defensive player will not lose the defensive position because of the steal.
The third is the defense breakthrough dribble. When the offensive player breaks the dribble, he needs to stand sideways at close range for physical confrontation. At the same time, the defensive player should use the physical confrontation to delay the opponent's movement speed. At this time, facing a close-range, slow-moving offensive player, the defensive player must find the right time to reach out and destroy the dribble. Then through the advantage of physical confrontation, step forward to fight for the basketball that has lost control.
All in all, the defense of a basketball that has not lost control should first interfere, disrupt the dribble, and then lose position to steal. In the face of a basketball that has lost control, you should be proactive and pounce and steal before losing position.
