The most widely used action is pick-and-roll play, which belongs to another lesson.
"Fall in love with easy."
Give-and-go is even easier than pick-and-roll. Here are just a few of the possibilities:
1. Wing - elbow - cutter
2. Corner - wing - cutter
3. Wing - top - cutter
4. Top - elbow - cutter
5. Top - wing - cutter
This includes give-and-go actions out of SLOB, with or without screens (above). The emphasis belongs on spacing and timing and usually the pass will be a bounce pass.
Overplay opens screening and back cuts. Ask players to define back cuts..."a cut that goes toward the ball and then away."
Coach Castellaw shares this short video. Remember Jay Bilas' Toughness commandments, including "set up your cut." He reminds cutters that the passer must see you. Note in the video how players often finish off two feet. Players need to develop a sense of the possibilities.
Here's a flashback to a summer post called Offensive Palette.
And an excerpt from that piece...combining ball screen with backdoor action.
Practice Day 1: Plan
Speed layups for warm-up via the Lithuania team at the #JonesCup. I like it because most of warm-up IMO is about getting shots as we shoot more than we get layups in games...the other part is a short burst of energy & enthusiasm so this would take care of that. pic.twitter.com/UQXy7w1Ozg— Chris Oliver (@BBallImmersion) July 29, 2018
