Post Defense Lane Line Slides Quick Finish Basketball Rebounding Drill


If you can lay the basketball up off the glass before the defender can get off the ground, you limit their shot-blocking ability. With this basketball rebounding drill, you will work on rebounding the basketball and then using a quick finish before the defender can react and get up off the ground to block your shot. You can use the rim to help protect your shot by doing a reverse layup if needed. This basketball drill works on rebounding, but it will also help the player develop soft hands and a good touch around the basket.
