Backdoor Cut Drill

The backdoor cut can be a powerful basketball offense tool. Watch Richard "Rip" Hamilton demonstrate this basketball drill and how it can quickly lead to a layup when the offensive player flees from the defender and cuts through the backdoor to receive a pass. Check out for more.


Coach 1: Okay, and another thing just straight out of that movement. Now, again, he has the flare option but also there is a back-door option. Now in this thing, Mike Garrity is going to really over-exaggerate coming over the top of the screen. He's probably looking for a steal and going down the other way for a layup. But obviously he's not going to get it. We're going to work on the back-door cut now. Why don't we get right in to that? 

Coach 2: Same thing. I know he's coming up. Layup. Shane, one more time. Let's do that one more time. So he's up, point guard has the ball over his head, boom, back-door, boom. Everything looks exactly the same coming up before as it did when you flared. Because if you come up, Mike, guard him again. If you guard him again, he comes up, it looks exactly the same. All of a sudden it's not the flare and he cut back-door. So everything looks exactly the same no matter what you do. And that's the deception that he has.
