5 on 3 + 2 is a great drill to teach your basketball team how to take advantage of fast break opportunities where they have a numbers advantage, and then seamlessly move into your transition offense if you have not gotten the shot that you want.
I have been coaching, effectively, for my entire life. Even as a child, I played while preparing myself to be a coach. While it is what I have the most passion for, I do do other things. However, no matter what I am doing, I see basketball in it. I often draw analogies from other things I do to basketball. I want to share my latest experience.
Working fast break drills in the half court is a very effective and efficient way to work. By doing so, you can simulate fast break actions and still get high repetitions.
In Wing - Trailer Shots, we simulate the wing getting a return pass, after the ball has been advanced to the corner, for a trailer shot.
This is a neat little zone action I picked up from one of the top teams in Germany.
It's simple, quick and will get a wide open shot on the weak side or allow you to get the ball into the post.
Notice how the defense is forced to match up on the strong side creating an overload on ball reversal with limited defensive options.
In the video, you will notice that the clip includes the offensive team coming down on the break and how easily it also serves as a transition offense
