Line Basketball Shooting Drill


Becoming a great shooter in basketball requires you to train and practice shooting the basketball under game-like circumstances. This is a great basketball shooting drill to work on shooting on the move and shooting when you are fatigued. It is important to be able to hit shots even if you are a little bit winded or have just sprinted up and down the floor a couple of times. Along with this basketball drill being excellent for getting up quality shots, it will also be a conditioning drill if the player is going at a high-pace.
