The Head Fake By Billups In Pistons – Celtics Game

Posted By on Dec 20, 2007 | 5 comments

Last nights head fake by Billups my not of been the play of night, but it sure did revive what was at one point one of the best rivalries in basketball. Though, since that head fake or pumps shot made me think of how important is in today's game.

Though Chris Sheridan reports the following:

"When did the Pistons deliver the knockout punch? Well, the play-by-play and the replays will tell you it came when Billups faked Tony Allen off his feet and drew a foul with 0.1 seconds left that sent him to the line for the tie-breaking and game-deciding free throws. But a big assist came moments earlier when the Pistons were exiting their timeout and Tayshaun Prince noticed that Tony Allen had checked back in as a defender."

Rather if it was the head fake/pump fake or not. The shot fake is almost a lost art these days while you can find a few that are excellent the importance it can have on a game as seen as last night in the Pistons vs. Celtics can be a lot.

Please come back shortly to learn how to properly execute a shot fake.


  1. As we know the Pistons are one of the best “teams” in the game. There is not one superstar surrounded by a (so called) supporting cast, so to speak.
    Just a fundaMentally great team. The years have shown a consistent achievement where once there was none. The addition of ‘Sheed made the puzzle complete. Now there are backup (I use the term loosely) players that come off the bench and contribute without missing a beat. How many teams have that? Those you can name are all Marque TEAMS.
