Like anything else, learning the skill of effective dribbling takes time and practice. Basketball handling drills and basketball dribbling exercises are very useful in learning how to dribble a basketball. It is important to keep your head up while dribbling. Dribble the basketball with your fingertips and pads of your hands, but without looking down at the ball. You must keep your eyes focused on the court and watch the players’ movement so you can anticipate the next move on offense. Learn to go by the rhythm and feel the basketball, so you don’t have to look down to dribble.
The 2nd effective play is the give and go. As soon as a passer makes a pass, he/she cuts quickly toward the basket in a path in which he/she can receive a return pass. Often the defense loses track of the passer for a second or more, so that the initial passer is open. It is good to go over this frequently in practice, so that players are familiar with how and when to make the return pass to the initial passer.
You should definitely learn to dribble a basketball well with each hand. This will open up your offensive game and it will be more difficult for defenders to predict your next move. If you only have one strong side, it will be easier for the defense to anticipate your offensive play, thus making it easier to steal the ball away.
