How to Break the Trap

RedsArmyAdmin May 29, 2008 Uncategorized Comments Off on How to Break the Trap

Everyone knows the Celtics are struggling with the Pistons trapping defense. Fortunately for Doc Rivers and the guys, I've dug up some secrets to beating these types of defenses:

-Never pick up your dribble without knowing where you will pass the ball.
-Encourage, or draw, the double team and then pass before they can set it up.
-Remain poised. Don't let one mistake lead to 2 or 3.
-Beat them up the court by fast breaking, then they cannot set up their press.

If only I could find a way to get these tips to the Celtics. All kidding aside, these are valid. If the Celtics simply executed them last night in the 4th quarter, they'd have had an easy win. Basketball isn't so hard after all.
