Clip 1: I would have liked this clip better if #2 Kamille had filled up to the wing after her basket cut. In this position, she could still Circle Move to the corner when the ball drives. But on the wing, she would be one pass away. This gives the ball handler more options like a Speed Dribble or a Pass & Cut or a Read Line Rear Cut by Kamille. Regardless of my obsession for perfection, this illustrates the Drive & Pitch action of the first Layer of the Read & React.
Clip 1: This is a good mix of Pass & Cut, Back-Screens, and Down-Screens that finally create a Penetrate and Pitch scoring opportunity. The coordination of Layers and players allows one action to set up another action that sets up another action, etc… Clip 2: Another good combo of the two main Layers of the Read & React: Drive & Circle Move and Pass & Cut. These two set up a third Layer for the score; the Baseline Drive. The Natural Pitch is open, but not for the shot – it’s the re-drive that scores.
Clip 1: The Pass & Cut Action in the 4out formation does not produce a basket in and of itself. Instead, the team uses it to hunt for an opportune time to drive for a lay-up. When the defense has been forced to move and change positions because the ball and offensive players have been moving and changing positions, the defense eventually misses an assignment or is not in the best position. A good hunter like Printy #24 will find it and exploit it.
Clip 1: This is a great Combo clip in a 4out formation. The Layers that you’ll see are Feed the Post with a Laker Cut, Pass & Cut, Post Blocking combined with Back-Screens.
Clip 1: Baseline Drive 45-degree window. However, note that all of the windows of the Baseline Drive Layer were filled and it’s a combination of 3 Layers: the post slid up to the 90-degree window (Basic Post Slides); the Safety Valve behind her was filled and the wing circled into the 45-degree window (Circle Movement); and the opposite corner flattened for the Natural Pitch (Baseline Drive Layer).
Clip 1: 4out High Post to 3out – middle drive.
Clip 1: 4out: a little mix of Pass & Cut with Dribble Penetration & Pitch.
Clip 1: This illustrates what I mean by a NORTH-SOUTH drive. The help defense must be across and deep, leaving the receiver plenty of time for the shot. Simple Layer 1 stuff.
