If you are a smaller guard or come up against a good shot blocker, you are going to have to be crafty when finishing in the paint around the basket. The curl cut finishing in the paint basketball drill is going to work on 3 different types of finishes that you can use in the paint off of a curl screen.
Being able to finish in different ways around the basket will keep the shot blocker from being able to line up your shot, because they will be unsure of how you are going to finish. Also, depending on how the defense is guarding you, you will have to execute a different type of finish. If you only have one type of finish than you are going to be in trouble. By using this basketball drill you will get lots of repetition at several different finishes, and that will allow you to be comfortable with all the different finishes, so you can use them in a game.
