This is a very game-like basketball shooting drill because it will simulate going from offense right into defense. It will work on conditioning players to always think about the next play and move from one area to another without any delay.
If you are a team that really likes to push the pace and get up to pressure the ball full court after a score, this is a great basketball drill to add to your workouts and practices. This combination basketball shooting drill will allow your players to get reps, train them to have the mindset of getting back after a score, and also work on the physical conditioning of completing multiple plays in a row without a break.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- Set up one chair on the left-wing, one chair on the right elbow, and another chair in the mid-range area of the right corner.
- Set a basketball in each of the chairs on the right-wing.
- The player will start with a basketball at half court on the left side of the floor.
- When the drill starts, the player will attack the chair on the left-wing and make any move they want before finishing at the basket.
- As soon as they finish, they will go to the right lane line and closeout at the baseline chair.
- As they are doing this, the coach will call out “1” or “2”.
- If the coach calls out “1,” the player will slide to the elbow chair and then open up around the chair, grab the ball from the chair, and then shoot it.
- After that, they will fill around to the left wing for their second catch and shoot shot.
- If the coach calls out “2,” the player will slide to the elbow chair and then back to the corner chair where they will open up, circle the chair, grab the ball and shoot it.
- After this shot, they will fill up around the elbow chair for their second catch and shoot shot at the left elbow.
- Regardless of what number the coach calls, after the player shoots their last shot, they will sprint back on defense and steal the lob pass that the partner tosses.
