What's the message? Explain how we play. Forget absolutes, demands, mandates, goals, values, standards. Stick to basics. Symmetry. What we want offensively we want to prevent defensively.
Get good shots. How?
-Sprint, don't run. Basketball is a sprinting game.
-Space the floor. Don't get magnetized to the ball.
-Cut and pass. Players and ball move.
-Screen (especially against pressure defense).
-Take OUR shots - layups, open mid-range, free throws.
-Rebounders get second shots.
Allow one bad shot. How?
-Get back to stop transition points.
-Shrink the floor by loading to the ball.
-Pressure the ball; take away give-and-go and back cuts.
-Know how WE defend screens.
-Deny the shots they want. No layups, no middle, challenge shots without fouling.
-Clean the defensive boards.
-Talk (ELO - early, loud, often)
If we do everything above, we still have to make shots. Tons of talk won't make shots. Practice volume shooting with pressure constraints of defense, time, competition)
Shooting drills (over a 1000 visits to this link):
Score "OSCAR MIKE" (On the move)...offense, defense, constraints (two dribbles)
Lagniappe: via Radius Athletics. Use deception.
Steph just faked like he was gassed and stopped running then picked it back up and buried a triple pic.twitter.com/rMyaTqYJwW— Sam Hustis (@SamHustis) December 23, 2018
