Shot Fake Counter Behind the Back Basketball Drill


If you are playing against a good team defense in basketball, it might not be enough to just get past one defender. There is usually a help defender that steps up if you do get past your original defender. If that is the case, you need to know what to do with the basketball after beating your defender.

For this basketball finishing drill, you will work on shot faking the first defender, making a behind the back counter-move on the second defender, and then finishing at the basket. This is more of an advanced move that needs to be perfected before using it in a game. This basketball drill will help you master the move and get you ready to use it in a live game situation.
