Zone motion basketball plays are important because a lot of times defenses will scout your set play,s and with motion plays your team is just moving the ball, reading the defense, and playing out of it. The key to a good motion play is to keep the ball moving and have players cut hard and maintain good spacing. You might not beat the defense on the first or second reversal, but keep the ball moving and they might break down on the third or fourth shift.
