The screen when set effectively will always create some problems in a defense. This will allow a brief opportunity to take an open shot. See how we do it in this video.

One Dribble Pull-up for the Basketball Shot

The one dribble pull-up jump shot has long been a go-to move for top-flight NBA players, and for any great shooter it is especially important. Using a quick move toward the basket is tough to defend for any defender no matter how quick they happen to be. But at the higher levels all good defensive teams will have somebody there to defend the basket. Being able to quickly pull-up and shoot accurately and consistently is vital for scores at higher levels of basketball.

There are many variations of the one step pull-up jump shot, and if a player can use all of them effectively it can make it almost impossible to defend. As I demonstrate in this video you can go either left or right, use a different pivot foot and shoot either with the pull-up or a long one-two step depending on where the opening for the shot is. As mentioned earlier professional basketball players like Carmelo Anthony (pictured here) use this shot to their advantage, and in this video I will talking through how I do it and then how it’s done on the professional level. Check out this video to understand how to put the one step pull-up into your toolbox to get your jump shot off turn consistently.
