In this embedded video and diagram we look at the transition system of the 35-0, state championship Chino Hills team of 2015-16. The Chino Hills transition offense was the main feature of its system. The Huskies played as fast as anyone I've ever seen at the high school level.
In Chino Hills transition, LiAngelo was always running the left lane and LaMelo always running the right lane. Big usually inbounded, but others did on occasion for speed sake. Eli usually was rim sprinting to suck in the defense. Lonzo usually got shorter outlet passes to make sure he got the ball in his hands quickly. If LiAngelo didn't get the ball on left lane sprint, he usually curled to the block to start his mid-post isolation.
Option #1 was always to spray the ball ahead. Lonzo only kept the ball if no one was open up the court. Chino Hills always advanced the ball when they had the chance.
If Lonzo couldn't advance the ball ahead with the pass, he dribbled it, usually looking to create off the bounce immediately. There were no entry passes into a set offense. It was a pitch ahead pass, or advance with the dribble to create.
If there was no attack in transition, Chino Hills quickly got into a high ball screen or mid-post isolation for LiAngelo on the left side.
