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

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

If you have a solid decision-maker at the PG spot, great shooters and a solid-screening big, this is a great set with lots of movement and actions in a short space of time. See More

ATO set from Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo. Play starts with a 21 DHO on the wing and a Pin Down on the weak side. As the ball is reversed, the PG clears the corner and the wing receives a chin screen for the lob.

Auburn Tigers - DHO Shuffle Swing

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 04/06/2019

More quality execution from the #1 ranked Half Court offense in the 2019 NCAA Final Four. Play starts with the PG entering a DHO with the shooter on the wing. As the shooter and trailer exchange pass reversals, the PG receives a shuffle screen from the post player and the opposite wing swaps sides. On the 2nd reversal, the trailer completes the reversal and hits the PG on the opposite wing, then slips the pick and pop. As the PG drives the shooters cuts the lane, then leaks out to the corner for 3! See More
