You must be practicing your shot at game speed, and shooting drills like the 100 point shooting drill will help you do that. Also, learning to shoot with pressure on you can simulate the pressure that comes with shooting a big shot in a game.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- The goal of this drill is for the shooter to reach 100 total points (2’s and 3’s), and they have 10 spots to do it from; 3 pointers corner/mid-range corner, 3 pointers wing/mid-range wing, 3 pointers top of the key/mid-range top of the key, 3 pointers opposite wing/mid-range opposite wing, and 3 pointers opposite corner/mid-range opposite corner.
- The shooter will start in the corner shooting 3’s.
- They will continue to shoot until they miss a shot and will keep track of their total points (For example: if a shooter makes 3 in a row from the corner and then misses the 4th, they will have a total of 9 points and must move on to the next spot).
- The player will then move to mid-range shots in the corner until they miss; all of these makes are worth two points apiece.
- Continue all the way around the 10 spots keeping this same pattern and adding your points up as you go.
