At Fort Myers High School we run the Read and React Offense from Better Basketball. If you are not familiar with the offense it consists of five spots that should always be filled. If your defenders feet are above the three point line (Read Line) and you are one pass away we tell our players to immediately cut back door. With that in mind this morning I put a couple of our guys through a grueling session of finishing moves which incorporates this concept.
When finishing from the sides I like to teach my players to get their shoulders parallel with the baseline to product themselves and the ball from a defender.
5 Spots - 12 Makes at each spot
Player starts under rim and sprints to the spot and cuts quickly back door.
1st 3 Shots: Right hand finishes using backboard
2nd 3 Shots: Left hand reverse finishes using backboard
3rd 3 Shots: Right hand floaters
4th 3 Shots: Left hand floaters
