3 Pointers Bad Pass Partner Basketball Shooting Drill


The bad pass partner basketball shooting drill is designed to help you work on shooting the basketball the right way even if you receive a bad pass from a teammate. During the course of a basketball game, not every pass will be perfect and right on target. That means that you have to learn to shoot the basketball even if it is a little low, high, behind you, etc.

A big key to this is recognizing the bad pass and then quickly adjusting your body behind the ball. If it is a really bad pass, you may not be able to shoot the ball at all, but the goal is to still shoot a high percentage shot even off a bad pass.
