Your index and middle fingers should be the last to touch the ball. Flick them and follow through so that they are pointing down, almost like you are reaching into the basket with these two finger. This should help with the backspin.

A good exercise to practice this is lying on your back and shooting the ball straight up into the air with your shooting hand only. Try variations of finger flicking and follow through until you find a combination that works.

Randy pretty much covered it all. You could try shooting with just one hand and concentrate on flicking the ball as you release it.
