Basketball Play - Minnesota Timberwolves - 44 Counter

Minnesota Timberwolves - 44 Counter

Mo Dakhil 09/12/2016

The 1 dribbles down the sideline, comes off 1-4 side p/r. After setting the pick, the 4 comes off a screen from the 3. If the defender goes over the top of the screen, the 4 immediately posts on the right block. The 3 pops out to the wing. If the 1 can throw the post entry pass or send it to the 3 for a better passing angle. See More

Basketball Play - 1-3-1 Defense SLOB Situations Part 2

1-3-1 Defense SLOB Situations Part 2

Rory Hamilton 07/26/2016

SLOB Situations-- We love to use the 1-3-1 on all sideline situations, especially when the ball is below the coaches box. By putting our tallest pusher (X4) on the ball, we can funnel the ball to the corner or make the offense throw it all the way back into the back court. You can also spring a surprise trap once the ball is inbounded and possibly catch the offense off guard. Both coverages are show below. See More

Basketball Play - 1-3-1 Defense Player Positioning Part 1

1-3-1 Defense Player Positioning Part 1

Rory Hamilton 07/26/2016

Keeper (X3) - We try to put a player that has great length and has a nose for the basketball. Often times this may be your tallest guard or a more athletic post player. The keeper's main responsibility is to make ball reversal difficult and to "keep" the ball on one side of the floor as much as possible. The keeper should also lead your team in rebounds due to the fact they have great positioning to read the flight shots from the corners and wings. Pushers (X4 and X2) - By far the most important position in this defense due to the demands we place on them. We usually put our best rebounding guard/post on the left side of the floor (X4) due to the high volume of shots taken from right side of the floor. We want our best athlete (our Michael Jordan) to be the right side pusher (X2) in our initial set up. We like having an undersized guard on the right side so they can pressure the initial entry pass, possible trap the dribbler at half court, and steal skip passes from the left baseline corner. Clogger (X5) - The clogger is usually your tallest post player or a physical guard if you have a small team. The clogger must do several things well to be successful. First and most important is to keep the ball off the high post. Second, they must always have high hands to aid in distorting diagonal passes to the block area. Finally, they must attack dribble penetration at 3pt line and keep ball out of the paint. Warrior (X1) - The warrior is usually our point guard but any guard can play this position. The warrior must always be in line vertically with the basketball. They must not allow anyone to screen them or pin them in at any time. They must cover corner to corner so someone with speed, quickness and great instincts works well in this position. Before looking at coverages and slides in the 1-3-1, we must first talk about the most important concept when playing this defense or any zone defense. Our players positioning is always in relationship to where the basketball is regardless of offensive alignment. In part 1 of our player positioning, you can see the basic slides and coverages when the offense passes guard to guard. See More

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

Gerard Hillier 06/15/2016

Here are some more basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we still use on a daily/weekly basis (they are a modified version of the traditional DDM Blood Drills). The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, but the ability to be able to make an appropriate read/decision is just as important. There is no point getting in to the paint if you are just going to throw the ball away. What we are doing in this series is creating gamelike situations for our players, then letting them play it out and build on their decision making ability. You can move the initial setup to suit your teams needs, and all players are encouraged to play all positions/roles as part of their basketball IQ development. See More

Basketball Play - Fist Up Short vs. Blitz / Hedge (Canada)

Fist Up Short vs. Blitz / Hedge (Canada)

Greg Youncofski 04/26/2016

This is a very effective play against a team that will blitz/hedge out on the middle ballscreen. The ball-handler is not looking to beat his man off the screen, but instead is looking to hit the bottom big as quickly as possible. The ballscreener is looking to set the screen and then roll quickly to the basket to receive the big to big pass before his man can recover. Make sure one of your better passers is making the big to big pass. See More
