This is a great scoring move to use against aggressive defenders. It will get you more open shots and more open driving lanes.
There is also a shooting drill that you can use too.
Don Kelbick teaches the move and the shooting drill.
As Don Kelbick explains in the video, there are a few keys to set up this move.
- Think Shot
You want to have an attacking mindset. You want to put pressure on the defense.
- Outside Hand
You want to lift your outside hand to give the passer a target. This also makes it harder for the defense to steal the ball.
- Straight Line - Front of the Rim
When you pivot on your bottom foot, you want to step with your swing foot (top foot) in a straight line to the front of the rim.
This puts the defender on your back and in a better position to be a scoring threat.
When you move in straight lines, it also makes you quicker.
- Don't Pivot Out Of Scoring Range
Also, as Don says, you want to use footwork and moves that put you in position to be a threat. If you pivot out of scoring range, you are not a threat.
