Making shots under pressure

This drill is designed to develop rhythm and consistency under pressure.

It is an imaginary one-on-one game, you against the “pro.”

Only take shots in the gray area (no shots in the paint allowed).

First one to ten points wins.

Every time you make a basket, you get one point.

Every time you miss, the “pro” gets 2 points.

So the object is to make 10 shots before you miss 5 shots.

You can do different versions of this drill:

  • All jump shots

  • All shots off the dribble (at each spot, you must dribble before shooting)

  • All shots off the pass (pass to yourself by throwing the ball out in front of you with back-spin)

  • Catch-and-pivot shots (face away from the basket, pass to yourself, pivot so you face the basket, and shoot)

  • Any combination of the above shots
