In Coach Tony Miller's 12th Dr. Dish Drill of the week, he breaks down a great team drill to work on non-traditional cuts to create gaps for open shots. Check out the video and explanation below!
More teams are using non-traditional cuts within their half-court offense to create double and triple gaps on the floor. When teams create this kind of spacing, defenses are forced to choose to either help or “stay home.” If defenders help, ball-handlers need to recognize the open man, and then the open man needs to be ready to hit the shot.
Triple Gap Shooting
The Dish will pass out to Player 1.
Player 1 immediately passes to Player 2 then makes a cut towards the opposite corner.
Player 2 drives the triple gap left by Player 1’s cut.
Player 2 kicks to Player 3 for the shot.
