There are many factors that influence the winning chances of a certain basketball team. But since basketball is a team game, we believe that you will agree that, if not everything, and then almost everything depends on the players’ relationship with each other.
When it comes to basketball betting and therefore basketball predictions, you always have to do some research. Find as much data about the teams as you can. Search for any info about the players, the tams and their past matches against each other, and the latest in general. Every effort of yours helps you get ‘insured’ against possible loss.
As we have already said it, the successful game in attack really depends primarily on the collective effort of the entire team.
Depending on how you organize and carry out the actions of the players, there are two main types of attacks:
- fast attack
- gradual attack.
The fast attack (quick breakthrough) could be applied most successfully when the opponent has sufficient time to arrange for his defense. The attacking team strives for a short time to create numerical or gaming advantage over the enemy and basket.
A quick breakthrough – the purpose of the quick breakthrough is through rapid and organized action to achieve numerical superiority over the enemy, or playing and to make a basket.
The possibilities for conducting rapid inroads are created when the following situations:
- after mastering the ball under the basket in the unsuccessful shooting
- upon successful shooting and successfully executed a penalty shot
- when inserting the ball in play from the sideline
- when the possession of the ball is questionable.
The quick breakthrough involves three phases:
- home – the mastery of the ball and the rapid drop in the game
- development – occupation of corridors and carry the ball in the opponent's field
- finish – attacking the basket and struggling for the ball
There is a counterattack in cases where the opponent's attack was interrupted; the defending team is until this moment passes in a counterattack. Its organization was based on the same principles as on the fast break. In most cases our counterattack is the result of active defenses and can be accessed by the entire team or group of players.
Therefore, the counterattack is a variation of the quick breakthrough, which is characterized by even greater dynamism and efficiency as a result of the surprise and the weakness of the opponent.
