Brian Goorjian Clinic

Rules

- attackers get 1 point for a skip pass
- no screens, no cuts
- offence tries to beat the defence on the dribble every time.

Variation - 4 on 4.

Go through it slowly first. X1 is butt to the basket, X2 and X3 are in gap (or deny) positions.

On the pass to O2, X2 closes out properly (sideline pin position, butt to the other sideline), X1 jumps to gap (or deny) O1, X3 jumps to a help position.

O2 takes one dribble, forcing X2 to change his stance. If O2 beats X2 on the first dribble, X3 comes hard at the dribbler, X1 rotates down to the low "I" position, X2 rotates to the high "I" position.

Variations

- X2 and X3 trap O2
- X3 helps and recovers
- X3 bluffs and recovers.
