Prepare your players for crunch time free throws by simulating similar situations in practice.

Have players practice free throws after scrimmage or running/conditioning drills. Practicing free throws when tired simulates in game free throw situations where they’ve been running up and down the court and may not get the same launch from their legs compared to free throws in a relaxed, rested environment. Missed free throws can loom large in close games.
