The simple answer is run faster and don't slow down at the moment of tackling.

The other answer is tackle low: it doesn't change the momentum, but it increases the effect of the tackle.

The player looses momentum,which is movement (speed). The collision causes contact between the two players which then causes the players to slow down. After a collision, however, a player can build momentum back up. After undertaking a collision, the player will slow down.

However, the vertical jumps of basketball players are lower than many other sports like football, discuss and shotput, olympic lifters etc...

Keep in mind that basketball requires more endurance than football so the training must be geared slightly more towards endurance then pure explosive movements.
