Basketball Drills: Triple Moves and Finishing at the Rim

Dr. Dish Basketball is back at it with another great Drill of the Week! In this basketball drill, we will focus on ball-handling and also finishing at the rim.
For our ball-handling part of the drill we will focus on triple moves before slashing to the hoop for the finish. In the video, you will see that we moved the Dr. Dish All-Star shooting machine away from the hoop and using the swivel net technology we are able to recieve game location passes from the top of the key.
Check out the video below showing how we used the All-Star shooting machine to maximize our training. This is a great drill for players of all skill levels and ages!
The first part of the drill requires the player to do a series of triple-moves. In this situation, we executed the crossover, between the legs, and behind the back triple move. It's important to focus on the fundamentals when dribbling. This includes being in a stance the entire time and also keeping your head up to simulate having great court vision. For players who aren't advanced, you can switch up what the ball handling moves are, but make sure you're always pushing yourself and dribbling as hard and quick as possible. After you've finished your triple moves, toss the ball into the swivel net and prepare to catch the ball for your finish at the rim.
Players must do their best to time the pass and catch the ball on the move to attack the basket. You can make another quick change of direction towards the hoop as well or attack in a straight line. Once getting to the rim, it's also important to work on different finishes to simulate real situations that you may encounter in a game. If you can't dunk like me, don't worry, you can still be a dynamic finisher. Power layups, reverse layups, floaters, finger rolls, and up-and-unders are all examples of effective finishes to work on. This is also a great opportunity to work on your athleticism and vertical to maximize your bounce.
Again, this is a great drill to work on ball handling, finishing, and even passing. The Dr. Dish All-Star is the only machine versatile enough in the world to properly execute this drill. No matter how advanced or dynamic a drill is, it's only effective if you work hard and push your boundaries.
