|Zone set plays|
Oakland loop series
Teams don't zone against Oakland because of the shooters, but if they do, they run zone offence, put the best shooter at the high post, move the ball around, pop him out, screen for him. They run dribble-drive sporadically against zone ("Memphis"), otherwise the zone gets comfortable. Coach yells out what he wants.
a) Loop drop 4
Start with a 1-2 loop (kickup). Against a 2-3 zone, 1 won't be able to get to the elbow, but make X1 guard him.
5 comes underneath as 1 hits 2 on the loop.
b) Loop kick
Start with a 1-2 loop.
2 throws back to 1 in the corner, 5 seals the middle of the zone.
The kick play will be wide open.
c) Loop pitch fist
An un-guardable play against zone. 1 is a shooter, 3 is the second-best option.
5 cheats ballside on the 1-2 loop pass.
2 drives middle, makes a positive pitch to 3, 5 comes from behind and screens X1 after the pitch.
Fist is a ballscreen, any time you put your fist up against man-to-man, the 5-man runs and sets a ballscreen.
3 is wide open for a pull-up shot unless X3 helps on 3, then 1 is open in the corner.
Run it on both sides.
