This is a great team basketball drill that you can use to get the entire team involved and work on finishing at the same time. Finishing at the basket adds a lot of value to your offense, and you must spend time working on finishing regularly.
The two-foot team finishing drill is something that you can incorporate into pretty much every practice because it is a basketball drill that doesn’t take very long to do and allows every player to get a lot of repetitions at finishing off of two feet.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- Set up a chair on the right side of the basket on the main hoop and the side hoop to the left of the main basket (if available).
- The line of players is going to be out towards half-court on the left side of the court.
- The passer will be just outside the left elbow.
- When the drill starts, the first player in line will pass the ball to the passer, cut hard through the middle of the paint, receive the ball back as they do, and then take one dribble before finishing off two feet outside the chair.
- The player will get their own rebound and (if available) dribble attack to the side basket for a pull-up jump shot.
- If there is no side basket, dribble back in line or dribble attack the opposite hoop before getting back in line.
- The next player in line will go right after the player in front of them finishes the layup.
- You can do this drill for a set amount of time or play the first player to a certain amount of points.
- Layups equaling 1 point and jumpers equaling 2 points.
