Being able to get easy points at the basket against a zone is really important for your offense. You don’t want to get stuck just shooting up a bunch of perimeter shots, and hoping you make enough to win. There are some plays that you can use against a zone to get a post up or a layup on the block, and not only will they help your basketball team get good scoring opportunities, they will also make the defense suck in and allow better shots from the perimeter.
All of these zone basketball plays come with a video of the play and written instructions about how to execute the play the correct way. Having the right plays in your basketball playbook could make all the difference in a close game. Give your team the best possible chance to win by giving them great basketball plays to run.
You don’t want your teams first pass against the zone to be an entry pass into the post, because it will allow the defense to all be in the help. For a post up play to work against a zone you must first run some kind of misdirection, and get the ball moving from side to side. This will open up the post pass and the finish from the block.
Another big key to running these plays the right way is timing. The post feed needs to be passed right when the player pops open, otherwise the defense will have time to recover and the play will be dead.
This post flash play is designed to be used against a 2-3 zone and will help make sure that the ball goes inside out before a shot or finish.
