Move of the week: No-dribble pullback into shot


This week’s move is the no-dribble pullback. Typically it’s used with a dribble, like a reverse between the legs pullback, but this is a variation. James Harden is popular for using this set up into his shot, because it almost serves as a step back. You want to have your momentum going forward and at the defender before snatching the basketball back to your body and right into your shot. With the right execution, it’s an effective way to get your shot off.
