Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Step Up

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Step Up

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is another preview of an action that is beautiful that occurred organically in the Texas Tech motion offense. Of all the actions we prepare our team to guard, we don't guard post up defense to pin down into a double step-up ball screen very well. This action puts great pressure on the rim because of both the athletic ability of Tariq Owens and the vision and beautiful pass by Matt Mooney.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Kitchen Sink

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a sample of the Texas Tech true motion offense. This is not a set play but a picture of the sequences of actions you will have to guard when facing them. In one possession you have to guard: a drag screen, flare screen, slipped step-up screen, a pick & pop, and one last flare screen by the 5 to empty the paint. The spacing struggles at times but they force you into uncommon situations and actions that it presents the opportunity for miscommunication and scoring opportunities.

Basketball Play - Virginia Cavaliers - PNP Runner

Virginia Cavaliers - PNP Runner

Matt Wheeler 04/08/2019

This has been one of Virginia's favorite after-timeout plays of the NCAA tournament so far. The baseline screen for 3 is a similiar action to what they do in their Blocker-Mover motion offense but this time they run it as a set play to make sure Kyle Guy (3) gets the ball for a look at a three-point shot. 1 dribbles left off the screen to shift the defense to that side of the floor. On the airtime of the pass to 5, 1 cuts across the lane and 3 cuts off the screen from 4. 5 passes to 3 for the shot. Blog Post: Virginia's Elite Efficiency on Both Sides of the Ball See More

Texas Tech Red Raiders - 25 Rub

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a very simple way to put 5's defender in a tough situation and a step behind a quick strike action. Notice the motion principles staying true off-ball with Culver adding the flare screen after 2's brush screen on 5. If x5 jumps to coverage early your big can slip to the rim wide open. As with most of Tech's offense were never 100% sure what is a natural occurrence in their true motion offense but nonetheless, this is a simple effective way to help your big arrive alone.

Basketball Play - Virginia Cavaliers - PNR Continuity

Virginia Cavaliers - PNR Continuity

Matt Wheeler 04/04/2019

Virginia uses a pick and roll continuity set that provides multiple opportunities for ball screens in a single possession. 1 dribbles off the ball screen looking for 5 rolling to the basket. If he isn’t available, 1 immediately passes to 4 up top. 4 looks for a quick pass to 5 continuing his cut to the rim. This is extremely effective against teams that hard hedge because x5 now has to sprint back to the paint to take away the layup. If 4 doesn’t have anything he will reverse the ball to one of the perimeter players. Just like in their motion offense, Virginia gives their players freedom to make decisions in this play. Most of the time 2 will make a backdoor cut, then 4 will follow his pass to 3 with a ball screen. This action can run continuously on both sides of the floor until they get the shot they want. The Cavaliers have the option of 4 reversing the ball to 2 and following with the ball screen. If this happens 3 cuts to the opposite corner, taking the place of 2 and keeping the continuity going.

Basketball Play - Denver Nuggets - Motion Off-Ball PNR

Denver Nuggets - Motion Off-Ball PNR

Matt Barnthouse 11/28/2018

The Denver Nuggets took advantage of their versatile lineup on this play during a 117-85 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on November 27th. It takes principles of a basic "pass and cut" motion offense, along with dribble penetration and pick and roll concepts. It starts out with passes and cuts, but then Jamal Murray (1) cuts back while Nikola Jokic (5) screens, starting a pick and roll action off after Murray receives a pass from Paul Millsap (3). This confuses the Lakers defense, which does not switch, and LeBron James, who is defending 4, is late on the rotation leading to a layup for Murray. The advantage of having bigs that can shoot is that if LeBron rotated earlier, Murray could've passed to either Juan Hernangomez (4) or Malik Beasley (2) in the corner for a catch and shoot opportunity. Sharing the ball forces the defenders to make decisions. The more decisions that have to be made, the more chances for an error that an offense can take care of. Having versatile players like the Nuggets do makes those defensive decisions so much tougher (do I stay on my guy and perhaps leave him open for a 3? Do I help?), which can often lead to these late rotations and result in buckets. See More

Here is a way to incorporate a dribble drive attack into your zone offense. Using a wing dribble entry, we shift the defense to the ball side, then set a backside ball screen to create a 2/1 on the backside.

Dave Nedbalek 10/31/2018

This is an attempt to scout an initial action that Marlyand will start their true motion with. They run a true free flowing motion offense which has very little consistent patterns, and consists of many off ball screens and various combinations of those. This is a great offense in terms of the inability to scout it, and the constant burden of communication it places on the defense.

Basketball Play - 4v4 Neutral Restrictions

4v4 Neutral Restrictions

null null 08/31/2018

Using four out perimeter spacing we try to recreate game like situations in the short sided game (SSG) format. Here we have our most common actions within our Dribble Drive Motion system. Starting the SSG in a neutral scenario, it is up to the offense to use a pre-determined action to create A) a Double Gap and B) Drive the Basketball into it. Coaches can pre-determine the action or simply allow players to create freely. See videos below for game examples of these actions!

Basketball Play - Boston College 4v4 Transition Drill

Boston College 4v4 Transition Drill

null null 08/13/2018

The progression of drills is really effective in this Boston College "Fast Break Concepts" video created by Coach Chris Oliver of @BballImmersion. The 4v4 Transition Drill that begins at about the 7:00 mark was one that I thought was particularly useful. The Offense starts with a slight 4 v 2 advantage and seeks to make a pitch ahead pass for a score. Whether the offense misses or makes, the defense will then take the ball back up the court 4v4.

Dribble Drive Motion: Chair Drill

null null 07/04/2018

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of drill progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. in this last installment we are focusing on "Shooting". On top of developing our players' ability to attack, finish & come to clean stops we want our players to be able to make the "Quick Pitch" pass vs helping defenses. We want all of our players who are not involved in the drive to the rim to have a "Catch to Shoot" mentality. We play heavy emphasis on players catching the basketball with the ability to rise up and shoot immediately. The "Chair Drill" presented below is a staple 2/0 Shooting Drill that is designed to shoot the three most common Drive & Kick opportunities that our players get. Players get 2-3 shots at each of the three locations, and then the same is repeated on the opposite end of the floor. This drill is one that could be easily tweaked and catered to fit your offense's most common shots as well.

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: 3v0 Stride Stops

Dribble Drive Motion: 3v0 Stride Stops

null null 07/04/2018

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of Drill Progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. In this third installment we are looking at the use of "Dribble Stops". Good Defenses will not be beaten by the first drive of a possession so it is important that players know how to use "Dribble Stops" as a means to keep the pressure on the defense. We place heavy emphasis on the use of 1) Stride Stops, 2) Two Foot Jump Stops, and 3) The Use of the Bounce Out Dribble. These three "Dribble Stops" allow you make plays after a failed drive, and in the case of the Bounce Out Dribble allow you to keep the basketball moving. The 3/0 Stride Stop Drill presented below is a 3 Man Progression Drill in which we are asking players to land perfect Stride Stops, followed by perfect timing of Second Cuts. Once players have moved beyond the 3/0 portion of the drill we can load the drill with defense.

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: Finishing at the Rim

Dribble Drive Motion: Finishing at the Rim

null null 07/04/2018

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of drill progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. In this second installment we are looking at "Finishing at the Rim". What we are hoping for our players is that they can finish at the rim from multiple angles, and with a variety of finishes. The "1/0 Technique" Drill below makes our players finish from the three most common angles within our offense; 1) The Slot Drive, 2) The Wing Drive from the Corner, and the 3) Baseline Drive. We want our players to feel comfortable finishing with at least 1-2 different techniques from both their strong hand and their weak hand. So over the course of the season we will emphasize these finishes; 1) Extended Arm, 2) Scoop, 3) Inside Hand, 4) Stride Stop, 5) Jump Stops, & 6) Reverse Pivots. The "1/1 and 2/2 Russian" Drills are good once we have moved beyond the Phase A portion of finishing. Those two drills are not only fun for the players, but represent very common finishing opportunities within our offense, 1) The Slot Drive with an advantage and 2) The Drop Pass.
