2 players 1 ball. This drill teaches the offensive player to make the right decision in an 1 on 1 situation as well as it teaches the strong move to the basket.
Player A, who is on offense starts with his feet behind the 3-point line at the top of the key. Player B, who has to defend starts with the ball behind the baseline. Player B passes to A, and follows the pass.
As player A catches the ball he has 3 choices:
1. Shoot the 3 point shot (made shot = 3 points)
2. Take a maximum of 1 dribble and shoot the 2 point shot (made=2 points)
3. Take a maximum of 1 dribble and shoot the lay up (made=1 point).
If A makes it the drill starts over, with a new person on defense (C).
If he doesn't score, whoever gets the rebound will get a chance from behind the 3 point line. Play games until 1 player reaches for example 30 points.
minimum 2, works best with 3-5 in a group
To get a more realistic passing angle for the shot, you could have a third palyer passing from the forward position, instead the defensive player from the baseline.
If the offensive player recieves a bad pass, he always has the right to throw it back.
