Have your offensive team run whatever offense you would like them to run. I usually have my kids run our passing game offense or some motion.

The offense starts with 3 points and can go no higher than 3 points. The defense must get the offense down to zero. To do this they must get defensive stops. Everything must be perfect (or at least close) in order to take a point away from the offensive team. If the defense forces a turnover or gets a defensive rebound make them outlet the ball to a coach and sprint to half court and then back and match up. This will add a conditioning aspect to the drill. The offense can score points by making a basket, or can gain points when the defense makes a mistake. If I catch some one chasing on screens, not in helpside, not talking, not denying the wing etc I blow the whistle and give the offense a point (make sure you tell what the point was for). Place a premium on rebounding by having the offense go back to 3 points automatically if they get an offensive rebound. This will stress that we are not done playing defense until we

rebound the ball.
