Steve Nash Basketball Shooting Drills

In this drill, you're going to learn how to use a shot fake to get by your defender. The most important part about this drill is for your defender to believe that you're going to make the shot. If they think you're a threat shooting the ball, they will play you much tighter.

First, use a shot fake to get your defender off the ground.

Next, you're going to use your dribble to get by your defender. As you're making the move to get by your defender make sure you're going shoulder to shoulder so there's no space for them to recover. 

Use 2 dribbles to get by your defender then pull up for an open jump shot.
