Basketball Play - Dynamic Offense - Single Gap Issues

Dynamic Offense - Single Gap Issues

Randy Sherman 01/11/2017

Offensive landmarks Problem With Single Gaps On a stationary pass to a static player, the defender is closer to the ball than the receiver. Makes it difficult to complete pass and vulnerable to the steal. Problem With Single Gaps On penetration into the single gap the defender (X3) is quick to help and quick to recover on the pass out. No advantage is gained. Problem With Single Gaps The backdoor pass may be available, BUT if help arrives the only option available is a pass back out to perimeter. There is no open pass to the rim. Problem With Single Gaps With sagging defense, no backdoor cuts are available See More
