NOTES ON MOTION:
When using an offene based on "motion rules" there are a few principles that need to be applied to ensure the best possible results.
- Score
- Ball reversal/movement
- Player movement
- Get inside the key (pass or dribble)
- post cutting rules
- spacing
- and receivers
MOVEMENT + PATIENCE = BASKETS
MOVEMENT WITH A PURPOSE
The receiver spots are shown above by the "X", they are inside the key at the elbow and also at the edge of the backboard.
 
RECEIVER SPOTS:
With all penetration into the key in motion we must get two receivers, 1 defensive safety and 1 player spotting up opposite.
If you are below the # mark you will always fill a receiver spot unless their is a post position filled on your side of the floor.
Setup 1.
#3 has penetration from the wing.
#5 and #2 will fill the two receiver spots.
#1 will become the defensive safety and #4 remains in place to spot up opposite.
 
Setup 2.
# 1 has penetration at the elbow.
#5 and #3 now get to the two receiver spots.
# 2 spots up opposite while # 4 fills in as the defensive safety.
#4 does have a lot of court to cover but as there they are on a post filled side they cannot be a receiver.
 
Setup 3.
#4 has penetration at the elbow.
#1 fills in as the defensive safety.
#2 slides down to spot up opposite.
And #3 and #5 become receivers.
 
POST CUTTING RULES:
High Post Series # 1.
#5 flashes high and receives a pass from #1.
#4 will backcut and #1 will fill in at the wing to balance out the floor.
 
High Post Series # 2.
#5 flashes to the high post and receives the pass from #1.
#1 now cuts hard to the basket and can either cut out weakside or replace at the ballside wing.
#4 fills in for #1 at the point to keep the floor balanced.
 
Low Post Series # 1.
#4 feeds the ball into the low post (#5).
#1 now cuts hard to the basket and will cut out to the weakside.
#4 fills in at the point for #1 and balances out the floor.
 
Low Post Series 2.
#4 feeds the ball into the post (#5) and cuts hard to the basket.
#1 fills in at the wing at #4's original position.
