In a basketball game, not every pass is going to be a perfect pass, and if the clock is running down, you might just have to shoot the basketball regardless of whether it was a good pass or not. This situation happens quite frequently in a game, so it makes sense to practice shooting from a bad pass.
If the clock is not running down or you are not on fire, you probably don’t want to shoot a bad pass, but if the circumstances are right, then you need to make sure that you are ready. You want to turn a low percentage shot into a good shot by learning to adjust yourself behind the bad pass. This only happens, though, if you are willing to spend time working on receiving a bad pass and then getting into your shot, and that is exactly what this catch and shoot basketball shooting drill is going to work on. Basketball drills like this are great because they work on game situations that you will encounter in a real game.
