Being able to put great defensive pressure on a ball handler can completely change the pace of a game. If the defender is able to frustrate the ball handler and keep them from getting into a set play, the other team is really going to struggle to score points. This will also speed the game up and cause turnovers which will lead to easy transition baskets.
This defensive basketball drill is going to work on being able to really harass the ball handler and crowd their space. On the flip side though, it is really going to help the ball handler learn to be able to handle the ball when being pressured in tight spaces. It is a great basketball drill to use with your point guards and the primary ball handlers on your team.
