Drill of The Week

Player Development Coach and NBA Trainer Maurice Riddick introduces a great drill for keeping downhill momentum off of a ball screen and into your jump shot.

Flat Screen Downhill Shooting

  1. Catch dish pass at the top of the key
  2. Use a cone, teammate, or your imagination to simulate a flat screen
  3. Come off screen and push the ball downhill into your midrange jumper

“First thing you want to do is make sure you have a strong base,” says Riddick. “Keep your head up and have great vision to understand where the flat screen is coming.”
