Practice like you play. For at least part of your practice, have someone play defense on you to take away the time you're depending on; practice taking quick shots, shots off balance (10 to 1 you're taking those "sick snipe" shots perfectly balanced, which never happens in a game--get used to scoring one-footed, turned halfway around, falling down, etc), shots through or around a defender.

Even without a defender, try to move outside your comfort zone. Take shots before you feel you're "ready", as if you were being pressured. Don't wait until you feel balanced, or until you get to the perfect spot; just improvise.

All of those are things that will happen in games, and being comfortable shooting from any [body] position will make you a better game shooter.
