What is the Pack-Line Defense trying to accomplish?
The pack line defense pressures the basketball while the other four defensive men stay inside a line around the 17-foot mark away from the basket. The off-ball defensive members try to give help on dribble-drive and stop the kick and shoot. Too many coaches think that they can shoot enough three-point shots to beat the pack-line defense. The Pack defenders try to play cutters and screens with passion and try to force a slower tempo with fewer offensive possessions.
