Decide which side to attack for right or left-handed players. (Karaicic screen capture)
Zipper actions into ball screen. Aggressive defense sets up the short roll and extreme pressure on the middle of the defense.
Coach suggests exploiting several types of mismatches - on ball, closeout, rebounding.
The point guard (right) has come off a dribble handoff and starts to penetrate. He passes to the wing to initiate post entry.
Get the ball back to the PG with a pass and handback into a high PnR. With aggressive defense, the back cut becomes available by design.
Zipper into PnR with goal of ball reversal. This could lead to a corner 3, a dive for 5 with a delay, or 4 could set a flare screen for 1. A lot of versatility in addition to classic middle PnR.
Against teams that front the post, zipper with swing and seal gets a possible layup.
Empty a side for a PnR.
