If you want to make sure that your team is successful when taking on an opposing team, you may want to have a look at some basic offensive basketball principles that your players can use to score consistently. These principles are not hard to understand but they may take some practice in order to learn how to use them effectively.
Remember that part of a good offense is placing the right players in key positions. One of the most important positions is that of point guard. This is a player who can assess the situation and ensure that the players are properly positioned to take any scoring opportunities which come their way.
One basic principle is that no offensive player should be allowed to move unaccompanied by a teammate. A player who is moving with the ball needs to have a teammate with them. This second player can fulfill a number of roles which can help improve your offensive capability. For example, they can receive a pass if the player with the ball suddenly needs to pass it in order to prevent the opposing team from stealing it. They can also help block opposing players if they attempt to get in the way of any shooting or passing opportunities.
