Your point guard needs to initiate the action by dribbling opposite your guarded player setting up a side ball screen with your low posted player. Your other players unguarded players ( 4 and 2 ) fill the ball side corner and weak side slot area. Most zones go under ball screens, so as th point guard comes off ball screen she should immediately look to penetrate elbow are for a shot. If the defender goes under the ball screen we teach our post player to "bury" the defender by performing a reverse pivot and sealing off defender and allowing the point guard to attack elbow area for a shot, pitch ahead, or a pitch back.
Initial alignment includes one post player on the block and one post opposite. Guarded player in weakside corner and other guard strong side corner.
Point guard initiates action opposite the guarded player and dribbles to the wing area.
Ball side post sprints to set an on ball screen and one looks to attack elbow area for a shot, pitch ahead to 4 for a shot, or a pitch back to 2 player filling.
On a pitch back, the screener dives and immediately looks to post the middle defender of the zone if defender (x2) covers the 2.
On a post catch we laker cut baseline and fill across with our 1 man and fill opposite elbow for a possible fan pass to 4 man.
