When you play against a zone you should have several good zone motion basketball plays as well as set plays. Zone motion offense is good because it keeps the offensive players moving, and helps to prevent the offense from getting stagnant. Keep the ball moving and maintain good spacing. Be careful though to make sure that your team doesn’t become robots in the offense. They need to be reading the defense, cutting to score, and taking advantage of any defensive breakdowns.
