About This Play/Drill

During today's NBA Draft Combine on ESPNU, the Small Forwards were put through this excellent 1-on-1 Closeout Drills to test the players' offensive and defensive skills in isolation situations. I love this drill because it puts the players in a realistic situation closing out from help defense to a 1-on-1 situation.

  • Basketball Play - 1-on-1 Closeout Drill

Coach with the ball passes to the wing and the defense jumps into help. Then that coach feeds the post and on the dribble the defense stunts. The post-coach then passes the ball out to the wing to an offensive player and the defense closes out to the offense. On the catch it becomes live 1-on-1.
