The scissor is a useful 1v1 dribbling skill you can use to fake out the defender when you need time to pass, shoot or explode. It works by taking an exaggerated step over the ball with your left foot and leaning your body in that direction, then quickly cutting the ball with the outside of your right foot so you can surge forward in the opposite direction. It’s great for fooling the defender so you can break away and create space. Players often break out the scissor when they already have a plan in place to execute their next move.
