Billy Donovan: Man-to-Man Side Ball Screen Offense with Quick Hitting Plays
Two-time NCAA champion head coach Billy Donovan, now the head coach of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, presents his offensive system that flows right from the fast break, pushes the tempo, and creates mismatches in this video. Donovan, one of only a few to ever serve as a head coach, assistant coach, and player in a Final Four, shows you how to exploit the weaknesses of defenses. You will learn how he executes the fast break on makes and misses and see over 10 set plays against man-to-man defense. Donovan also shares his thoughts on zone offense.
Because of a strong belief in taking advantage of where defenses are weakest, Donovan emphasizes transition. Donovan believes defenses are most vulnerable in transition before they have had time to set up. In this segment, Coach Donovan shows you his structured break that puts the point guard in space so he can drive and create plays. You will also see how the break flows right into the ball screen offense if a basket is not scored in transition.
Pick & Roll
Coach Donovan teaches the three basic principles that coaches must understand in running successful pick and roll actions: shallow cuts, slip screens, and using screens. Donovan reviews each action and details how players can make the right read. You will even see how the low post can make decisions on ball screens, double screens, and posting up.
With all the pick and roll concepts, Coach Donovan stresses spacing which forces defenses into constant help and recover situations. By teaching your players the right reads to flow into ball screens and other actions, the offense becomes one that is unpredictable and hard to defend.
In the final segment of his video, Coach Donovan shows you a series of set plays versus man-to-man and zone defenses. You will see over 10 man-to-man plays and three zone sets that use the pick and roll. Donovan uses some of the more well-known sets in the game including Floppy and Horns as well as elevator screens and the spread pick and roll. Each set is different and is easy enough to be put into any offense.
If you are looking for a consistent scoring offense that is difficult for opponents to scout, Coach Donovan is one of the game’s leaders. You will keep you opponents off balance and your players happy giving them the freedom to create scoring opportunities.
