Guard the shooter as if he could pull the trigger (shoot) any minute. Usually, good shooters are not the fastest on the court. Get up in the grill of the shooter, but not so close that you may be called for a foul. Make sure you are in a good defensive position with your hands up, contesting the shot. Because he is a good shooter, guard him closely on the perimeter or wherever he is known for shooting.
