Why should you create deflections?

Create Deflections Deflections reflect defensive intensity. Whenever a defender touches the ball, there is a chance a teammate might steal it. Deflections create easy scoring opportunities and give the defense a psychological edge over the offense. Keys to creating deflections are to keep the hands and feet active, mirror the ball constantly with one hand, swarm the ball handler after the dribble is picked up and see the ball and overplay the next penetrating pass if you are defending a player off the ball.
