Nothing is more valuable in basketball than a little space. Whether it’s to get your shot off or dishing it to a teammate, a little room can make all the difference. One of the best ways to create some space between you and the defender is with the punch drag, a favorite move of Damian Lillard. Master the basketball skill by checking out the video below from the experts at the elite basketball skills academy 90/10. Video courtesy of @90.10training.
