I've watched several coaching videos in my time and the coaching cue I like is "Slam it low, receive it low." Personally I like to take a jab step to get the defender moving in the direction I want him to "fall" toward, then slam it. Also, you should go "body to body" if you're wanting to attack the rim, not just the opposite direction unless you are wanting to do a pull up jumper.
