Shallow - (against zone defenses)
This is a really simple but effective play that I like to use at the end of the quarter or end of game. It's works against all zones but it's particularly effective against the 2-3 zone.
You'll want Player 1 to be your best 3 point shooter and Player 5 to be your best post scorer.
Player 1 dribbles towards Player 2 to fill his spot.
- As Player 1 dribbles, Player 2 makes a shallow cut to the top of the key.
- Player 1 then reverses the ball by making a pass to Player 2.
Player 1 makes a wide cut towards the basket and then makes his way to the far corner.
- Player 2 should immediately pass the ball to player 3.
Player 3 passes to Player 1 in the corner.
Player 1 then has the option to shoot the open three point shot, or look for Player 5 posting and sealing his man on the low block.
You'll find that both players are almost always open for good shots.
