Defending
Corner shooters

a)

1 drives from the top, X2 stunts at the ball and steals a pass to the corner.

They do not leave a corner shooter, stunt at the driver and look for a steal, they'd rather have 1 drive into a big who has his head on the rim, make 1 play basketball.

Progression - the shooter moves up out of the corner, it's still corner to them, the defender has to stay below him so he can't cut backdoor, stunt and steal.

b)

On a baseline drive from the other side, the defender of a shooter in the weakside corner gets lower than the driver, stunts like he is coming at him, and goes the other way (toward the corner), they're not giving up the corner jumper.

Progression - 1 drives to the lane line before passing.
