Push the ball into the front court and get shots at the rim for your small forward and shooting guard during the drill’s first half
WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL SHOOTING DRILL
This is one of the best ways to simulate the game speed needed to excel when pushing the ball up the floor.
Your two post players are in the lane. The point guard is stationed on a wing. Place cones at mid-court on opposite sides so players get used to spacing wide in transition offense.
HOW TO PLAY
The center grabs the miss and outlets. The shooting guard and small forward run to the outside of the cones and fill lanes in the front court. The point guard dribbles to the middle and passes to the small forward, who dribbles hard and scores a layup as the two posts trail in position to rebound . The two wing players cross under the hoop and fill opposite lanes again. The point guard passes to the shooting guard, who dribbles
hard and shoots a layup . The motions coming back from left to right are the same except when the small forward catches the pass, he then passes to the cutting center for a layup .
Your posts are the “rim runners” and need to sprint the length of the court to be in position for scoring or rebounding opportunities.
