The premise of this drill is to mimic quick action in early offense. This will improve your screening, how your guys/girls catch and shoot and read the defense. On the flip side your defense will be able to not let cutters cut without being bumped and improve communication. We play a game to seven. There are three options to this drill outlined below. Drill #1 is a UCLA cut. Drill #2 works on the Ghost Screen and drill #3 has a backdoor option.
Drill #1. Offense must score in seven seconds or less. Start this drill at half-court on the point guard weak hand. 1 dribbles hard at 2. 2 cuts to the basket and makes a L-cut to screen for 4. 4 dives hard and 2 pops to the 3-point line.
Coaches: if you play against teams that like to switch this is a great drill to put into your offense. 4 and 2 both have mismatches to exploit.
Drill # 2 has the same premise, score in seven seconds or less. 1 starts at half court and dribbles at 2. 2 sets a Ghost Screen, the kind Golden State uses. 1 passes to 2. From here 2 can catch and shoot, catch and go or hit 1 cutting to the hoop.
After 4 sets the back screen he/she pops to the 3-point line.
Drill #3 in my 3 on 3 seven seconds or less series is a backdoor option. This drill helps your 4 become a better passer.
2 can work on different types of finishes-reverse lay-up. Ball fake. Up and under move. Left and Right hand finishing.
On the catch 2 sprints out the the 3-point line and then cuts backdoor.
