Basketball Play - Player Development: 1v1 Block Finishing

Player Development: 1v1 Block Finishing

Tony Miller 07/06/2018

This multipurpose drill works on both defense and offense. Players must react quickly when the coach chooses a player to throw the ball to on either block. The player on offense must score at the basket against immediate pressure. The player on defense attempts to prevent a basket without fouling. Make the drill competitive by keeping score (defensive stops, made baskets, etc.). Click for more #PlayerDevelopmentWeek content! See More

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: Finishing at the Rim

Dribble Drive Motion: Finishing at the Rim

Michael Lynch 07/04/2018

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of drill progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. In this second installment we are looking at "Finishing at the Rim". What we are hoping for our players is that they can finish at the rim from multiple angles, and with a variety of finishes. The "1/0 Technique" Drill below makes our players finish from the three most common angles within our offense; 1) The Slot Drive, 2) The Wing Drive from the Corner, and the 3) Baseline Drive. We want our players to feel comfortable finishing with at least 1-2 different techniques from both their strong hand and their weak hand. So over the course of the season we will emphasize these finishes; 1) Extended Arm, 2) Scoop, 3) Inside Hand, 4) Stride Stop, 5) Jump Stops, & 6) Reverse Pivots. The "1/1 and 2/2 Russian" Drills are good once we have moved beyond the Phase A portion of finishing. Those two drills are not only fun for the players, but represent very common finishing opportunities within our offense, 1) The Slot Drive with an advantage and 2) The Drop Pass.

Basketball Play - 1 v 1 Contact Finishing

1 v 1 Contact Finishing

Jordan Petersen 07/18/2017

Defender stands at the elbow facing the basket. Offense is on the baseline and dribbles out to the defender and goes around the defender. Once the offense turns the corner it is live. Offense is getting shoulder tip hip/chest and trying to cut off or veer defense to finish. ADD ON: Dribble decision making/change of direction move can be added. Defender can lift up right or left arm to signal what way the offense must go around. See More

This continuous game-like finishing drill works on 5 different moves from 5 different spots on the floor. These moves can be attempted at different spots using left or right hands. This drill also helps develop footwork (pivots), rip through, and ball fakes. We name the moves after NBA players as it is easier to remember and embrace. Bonus:1) Add Euro step 2) Add a blocking pad to finish with contact. See More

Basketball Play - 5 Spot Finishing

5 Spot Finishing

Kyle Gilreath 07/04/2013

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. See More

Basketball Play - Michigan Finishing

Michigan Finishing

Dan Murphy 04/23/2013

Demonstrated by Michigan's John Beilein at a clinic. Great drill for first step explosion and finishing with contact and defensive pressure. 1 must explode past the defender in order to get 2 on his/her hip. Then finish strong at the rim. 2 should contest but not get in the habit of fouling. See More
