How to Play Tight Perimeter Defense in Basketball
Before your opponents inbound the basketball, identify who exactly it is you are to defend.
Identify whether your match up is right-handed or left-handed.This is key.
Know how much time remains and always keep it in the back of your mind!Knowing how much time is left on the clock allows you to better know when to aggressively go for a block attempt and when to stay grounded. If there is enough time and your player is dribbling, you may attempt a steal, but use caution! A foul, unless you have one to give, is not a good idea in this situation. Try to swipe at the ball as it hits his hand and is headed back towards the floor. One of the best times to try to go for a steal is when the offensive player is crossing over. You could also miss the steal completely, and he would be able to get by you easily. Also notice the player's attention, if it's on you or his team.
Generally, play an arms length away, one hand high to defend the shot another low to swipe at the ball or deflect a pass.Too close and you're more prone to be driven on, too far and the offensive player could just pull up for a shot.
If he cocks back to shoot the ball, contest the shot with your hand opposite of the shooter.For example, if the player is left-handed, put up your right hand, right-handed, left hand. You do not always have to go for the block while playing perimeter defense, especially when your unsure if they are really shooting. Sometimes it is better to just close out on the shooter and give he or she the least amount of room possible to get off the shot without fouling. This is done by stepping up to them when shoot and getting as tall as possible, with your hands straight up or you can use your hands to cover the shooters eyes.
When you are positive the shot is being taken, jump to meet the ball and swat it to a place where you can get it, or, if you must, out of bounds.

- Keep your hands active on defense. If your hands are constantly trying to poke the ball out, deflect a pass, or impede vision you give the offensive player something else they have to focus on as well as giving yourself the opportunity to cause a turnover or deflection with your hands.
- You impede an offensive player to a spot with your feet, not your hands. Remember to slide your feet.
