Dribble-drive 2 on 0
2-on-0 dribble-drive shooting, players rotate spots, optionally bigs rotate in from behind the baseline. Regular scoring (3s and 2s), or 1 point for a finish at the rim. In some cases speed up the drill by having two players at the shooting position (shown). Drop zones are elbows and higher, drag zones below the elbows (drop 2 and drag 2 are on the right).
