3-on-3 Free Throw Line -To- Three-point Line

This Brad Stevens' defense drill improves your on-ball defense and the effectiveness of your help defense.  You emphasize habits such as faking at the ball and being in proper help position. By doing these things, the opposition will be less likely to drive and attack the gaps.  Thus, lowering the amount of high-quality shots taken.
1 starts with the ball and works down the court via the dribble or pass. Once at the three-point line, you can play live. If the defense steals the ball, they can try to score on the other end. x1 is a few steps away from 1 ready to play straight up. x2 and x3 are in proper help position.  They also fake and jab at 1 to deter dribble penetration.
Frame 1
When a defender is two passes away, the defender drops lower than the ball and is ready to give help.
Frame 2
Points of Emphasis On-ball defender is to stay low and the only goal is to keep the ball-handler in front, you are not trying to steal the ball rather you are trying to disrupt the flow of the offense. If the ball-handler picks up the ball, the on-ball defender must be up into him. When two passes away, the lower defender's job is to prevent layups.  If the on-ball defender is beaten, they must stop the ball. Defenders that are one pass away are in the passing lanes to deny quick passes that lead up the court.  The defender should also fake or jab at the ball-handler to make him nervous -- by faking that means he is in/out (i.e. coming at the ball-handler slightly and then retreating back to original possession).
