Embedded below is a video on the defensive tactic of “chasing the snake dribble.” A snake dribble is a common maneuver used by guards against “drop” pick & roll coverage. In order to play the pick & roll 2-on-2 and prevent defensive rotation, it’s imperative for the guard to understand this concept. If the ball-handler’s attack were to be more vertical, a Veer Switch would be called. Look below for more info on the Veer Switch.
