This is a nice 2-man defensive drill to work on helpside defense as well as recovering. The defenders work at cutting off flashes and passes, while being able to recover to their man.
Coach starts with the ball. 2 flashes to the middle of the lane, and X2 must stop the flash.
Once the flash is checked, 3 steps in bounds and Coach passes to 4. X1 must drop back to guard the basket, and X2 must step over to cut off 4 penetrating baseline.
Once the penetration has been cut-off, X2 must guard the backside lob to 3, and X1 moves back up the floor to guard penetration or the pass to 1.
