Even if I would like to say otherwise, scorers get all the attention. If you wanna get to the next level, you will have to prove you can put the ball in the basket. Here is how you do just that.
Become an efficient [private]3pt shooter – You don’t have to become Ray Allen overnight. However, a decent 3pt shot will do a lot for you. First, it will make you score 1 more point each time you make one. Second, it will open up other opportunities when defender realize you can shoot. That space will allow you to do more scoring.
Become a GREAT mid-range player – This is where it’s at. You need a deadly mid-range game. Face it, you won’t shoot 10 3s each night, and you won’t have 10 layups unless you are lightening quick. Even then, defenses will adjust and will send backside help each time you touch the ball. Most of your points will come from the mid-rand. Develop a great pull up jumper.
Attack the rim! – Obviously, shots in the paint are hight percentage shot. You need to get there as often as possible. Attack the rim strong with power lay ups. Do not avoid contacts. You want to get fouled; three point opportunity – a free throw is an easy shot, and you gave a foul to one of their players. Great scorer provoke many fouls.
Run the break – When your point guard has the ball after an outlet pass, you need to be the first man down the court. EVERY TIME. This is the easiest way to score points and has nothing to do with talent, but willingness to run.
Crash the boards – generally, if you are a good offensive rebounded, you will get many second-chance shots (which generally become three point plays).
[/private] Do the math. If you play 15 minutes, you can get 4 fast break points, 4 second-chance points, 1 three pointer, 1 lay up in traffic, 3 free throws, and 1 pull up = 18 pts. This is only an example (DO NOT PLAY FOR STATS, PLAY TO WIN).
Try these techniques, and let me know it worked for you,
