Zone offence
Nets chin series

New Jersey Nets

The Nets will run a lot of quick hitters to screen the zone and get the ball to scorers in positions where they can be effective. In general they want to:
- make 2 defenders play one attacker
- attack the short corner (heels to the baseline) and middle
- attack from behind
- pick and roll
- screen the zone
- place attackers in the grey areas of the zone, not matched up with defenders.

The chin series is based on the Princeton offence.

a) Pick and roll

3 looks to attack the short corner with a pass to 1.

5 screens the closest and most logical defender. The Nets don't care about screening the outside of the zone because they end up in a 4-out set.
 
See Offence - Dribble-drive ballscreens (Chin for 4), Zone set plays - Nets forwards out.

2 can look to throw back to 3.

3 flashes from behind the zone, 1 moves into vision.

Basic chin set against a zone

1 yells "zone" as he cuts through.

With the ball in the corner, defenders are all in the paint, the Nets like to get the ball back up top.

(Possible variation - 3 cuts to the other corner, see the Blue and China zone attacks.)
