Basketball Play - Hapoel Holon - Late Clock Full Court BLOB

Hapoel Holon - Late Clock Full Court BLOB

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 04/09/2021

This is a great play that Hapoel Holon Head Coach Stefanos Dedas used in the BCL Playoffs to get a 3pt from a full court OOB with under four seconds on the clock. The plays starts out with the defense in a 3-2 zone in the 3/4 court designed to stop Holon's ball handlers taking two dribbles and pulling up. The play is designed to use a height advantage for the passer and the receiver, then overload the defense if they trap the catch. *New customers use code SAVE10 for 10% OFF Draw/Scout* See More

Basketball Play - Tenerife - Zipper X Wings SLOB

Tenerife - Zipper X Wings SLOB

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 12/22/2020

Really creative action to attack an even front zone, either 2-1-2 or 2-3. The play starts with Tenerife running the zipper entry into their "Canarias" SLOB. Once they relize they are playing vs zone the play call is changed and the two bigs set double, inside ball screens vs the top of the zone. *New customers use code SAVE10 for 20% OFF* See More

Basketball Play - Chin Lithuania - 2 side Option

Chin Lithuania - 2 side Option

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 05/25/2020

BC Rytas Vilvius head coach Dainius Adomaitis runs the most efficient ATO sets in the Lithuanian LKL. This set is a favorite of his coming out of a timeout. This play uses a "Chin" entry to get into a continuity ball-screen, in this case within the format of the Lithuanian 5-man break. This is the option to reverse to the 2-side. They like to execute running slips to the corner from the 4-man to attack switches. See More

Basketball Play - Box Angle Empty

Box Angle Empty

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 05/24/2020

BC Rytas Vilnius head coach runs the most efficient ATO sets in the Lithuanian LKL. Rytas also lead the league in PPP (per Synergy) from the roll-man. This set is great way to get into an angle pick-and-roll early in your offense. If you have an elite playmaker at the 2 guard and a great short-roll decision-maker at the 5 position, this play is simple but veru tough to guard. See More

Zipper Angle

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 05/24/2020

BC Lietuvos Rytas head coach Dainius Adomaitis runs the most efficient ATO plays in the Lithuanian LKL. Rytas also lead the league in PPP (per synergy) on play with the roll man. This play is an excellent way to get into an angle pick-and-roll and blur the defensive responsibilities. the first baseline cut from the 3 empties the paint and then the 4 man cuts behind the help forcing his defender to choose help or his duck-in.

Flex - Punch Split Option

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 05/22/2020

RETAbet Bilbao Basket coach Alex Mumbru runs some very efficient actions out sideline OOB. This is the "Punch Split" option out of the "Flex" entry set. This set is a great way to get into a big to small off-ball screening action out of a logo post-split. This set will work well if you have good catch-and-shoot PG. See More
