Shooting

"Drive Middle, EuroTurn, Jumpshot." When driving the middle, your defender will eventually have to get to your inside hip. When he does, use a front pivot to create space for your jump shot.
"Drop Step, Dribble, Layup." When you get the ball on the wing, use your body as a spacer. As your defender comes over the top to contest the pass, keep him there with your hip and drop step to leave him behind as you go to the basket.
Acting with immediacy is essential for quality offense. In Catch, Rip, 1 Dribble Jump Shot, we make an immediate direction change upon the catch to create space for a jump shot.
Catch the ball on the run and, using your inside foot as your pivot foot, rip to the middle. One dribble gets you back to your shooting foot, clear your defender for the jump shot.
When in the lane, a quick jump hook is a very potent weapon for any player.
