how do I shoot over a taller player?

Shot Fakes

Before shooting while being guarded by a person that is taller than you, pump faking is a very effective tool to have in your arsenal. A pump fake, also called a shot fake, will often get your opponent to leave his feet, or at minimum lose his defensive balance as he jumps at you for a shot block or a shot contest. This will create an open shot or lay-up opportunity.
