A great way to create offense is to drive and kick to open shooters. This basketball drill will work on driving the baseline and then kicking the ball out to the opposite wing player who has drifted down to the corner for a shot. To make this combination basketball shoot drill a little bit more difficult, the driving player will have to dribble two basketballs.
This basketball shooting drill is used by the Georgetown University men’s basketball team, and it is a really great drill for guards and wing players. Add it to your practice or workout this week!
