Basketball Play - Elevator Screen Action

Elevator Screen Action

Matt Wheeler 11/02/2017

Just like in other actions, the positions don't matter as much as putting players with the right skill set in those positions. Most of the time the 1, 2, and 3 positions become interchangeable with the 4 & 5 usually setting the elevator screen. The elevator action happens when a player cuts between two screeners. Once they get through, the screeners close together (like elevator doors) to form a wall where the defender can't get through, which frees them for a shot. 1 must be a good passer to deliver the ball to the shooter. 2 needs to be a good shooter - this action should get them open for a shot. 3 can set additional screens, create misdirection or provide spacing. 4 & 5 are your screeners, typically they are your bigger players, and will close the door on the screen after 2 cuts through Blog Post: Offensive Action Breakdown - Elevator Screens See More

Basketball Play - Zipper Series

Zipper Series

Timothy Hipps 11/13/2017

Zipper Series Breakdown Zipper = a cut off a down screen up the free throw lane line. 3 sets that involve a Zipper action as the base and finish with a different aciton: America, Slice and Flex. Zipper Series plays are great for a players who have difficulty getting open, or a point guard who is a primary scorer. This plays also works well against teams who deny off the ball. As each set begins the same way, the defense does not know which action is coming after the Zipper, making it difficult to scout and guard. See More

Basketball Play - Chicago Bulls - Elbow DHO Elevator

Chicago Bulls - Elbow DHO Elevator

Matt Wheeler 11/01/2017

The Chicago Bulls summer league team used multiple actions to set up the elevator screen. Though only 2's defender had to defend the elevator screen, 4 & 5's defenders had to guard additional screening action right before the elevator screen (a stagger dribble handoff for 3). The multiple screening action makes it more difficult for them to provide help on the elevator screen. Blog Post: Offensive Actions Breakdown - Elevator Screens See More
