Outside Play.   Jab Step Crossover.   See this page also. In triple threat position, make a jab step and read the defense. If the defender does not drop back, attack at the defender's forward foot. Here, the defender's right (inside) foot is forward. Swing the ball low and across to the left. Quickly cross your right foot over to the left (do not first return your jab step back). Drive in a straight line, hard off the defender's inside shoulder. In the clip, this is a borderline "travel"... make sure the ball leaves your hand (start of the dribble), before the pivot foot comes off the floor. Not shown here, a good shot fake is often more effective than the jab step.
