This 3-2 zone basketball play is designed to attack the weak points of the zone. The baseline and corners are where you are going to find openings for shots against the 3-2. Keep moving the basketball and good things will usually happen against the zone. Don’t become stagnant and just settle for outside 3 pointers. This play is going to use a baseline double screen action to help open a shot up for the offense. The goal is either to get a shot for the shooter using the screen or take advantage of the defense for over helping and hit one of the other players for a shot or finish.
