In this Dr. Dish Drill, Coach Tony Millerbreaks down a great drill for players to work on mid-range shots and floaters. Check out the full breakdown in the video below!
If you’ve spent any time watching the games from the NBA, you may have noticed the increased number of floaters and even mid-range shots taken. Despite your feelings on the effectiveness on those two types of shots, the fact of the matter is that players will be forced to take those shots from time to time.
The drill will have the player taking 3 shots from each spot.
The first shot, worth 1 point, is a floater just outside the paint.
The second shot, worth 2 points, is a one dribble pull-up jump shot.
The final shot, worth 3 points, is a catch-and-shoot 3PA.
The drill finishes with 2 free throws, each worth one point (make in a one-and-one situation to increase the pressure).
