A wicked crossover dribble is said to break the defender's ankles.

Quote:
Ankle-Breaking Crossover: Any crossover that causes the defensive player to stumble, and fall on the ground. Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard, are all point guards in today's NBA that are known to cause defenders to become off balance with a crossover, which is colloquially known as an ankle breaker.
