Easy Zone offense play with several chances to do the basket.
This is a play to give player 1 an open shot. But if that doesn't work we have some more choices to clear the situation.
1 passes to 2
This is the signal for 4 to go to the weak side.
1 runs through the zone (there is a chance for a give and go with 2) and gets behind players 5 and 4.
3 steps a bit higher to receive the pass from 2.
When 1 gets behind the screen, he receives the pass from 3.
Now 1 has the chance to take the shot.
If he cannot shoot, 3 drives through the zone.
1 can now pass to 3.
2 takes the old position of 3.
If 1 cannot pass to 3, he can now pass back to 2.
3 gets out of the zone to the weak side and gets to the old position of 2.
4 now clears the screen and gets into the zone. 2 can now pass to 4. If 4 is not open, which is mostly the case, 4 gets to the opposite side.
Then 5 gets into the zone and 2 has the second chance to pass into the zone.
If 5 is not open, 2 can pass to 1.
If nobody is open, 5 returns to his old position and 1 gets to the forward position on the same side.
Now we are back in the starting positions and we can try to play the same on the other side.
