Finishing on Baseline


Finishing on Baseline with DJ Sackmann. This Finishing breakdown focus first on taking one dribble and two steps on the finish. Once this is mastered, move back to three point line extended and work on 2 or 3 dribble through finishes.

Point guards must possess the ability to dribble through underneath the rim. Here we look at a same foot same hand finish if your defender stays on the inside shoulder. Dribbling through the baseline can give you kick out, dump down, DHO’s, finishes and lob opportunities.

Steve Nash and Chris Paul are two players who have done a tremendous job utilizing all of the options above during this dribble through.
