Basketball Drill Demonstration

Description

Player 1 passes the ball inside the key to player 2 and follows their pass. Before they enter they key player 1 cuts out to receive the return pass from player 2.

At this point player 1 should dribble towards the basket with the intention of scoring. However, as soon as player 2 passes the ball they are allowed to close down and put pressure on player 1.

Once Player 1 has taken their shot player 2 should collect the ball and drive out of the area before joining the back of the attacking queue. Player 1 joins the back of the defending queue.

Coaching points

To start with instruct the defenders only to apply pressure. As the drill progresses though you can increase the role of the defender, allowing them to try and dispossess the attacker if they get the opportunity to do so.
