Play of the Week: Phoenix Suns - Zipper Chicago

Breaking down this Phoenix Suns set from head coach Monty Williams. This combination of Zipper + Chicago actions back-to-back is very tough to guard. In this case, Devin Booker (2) has options to score it himself, or pitch to teammates if the defense collapses.

Drill of the Week: Cone Handoff 1v1

Modified 1 v 1 games are a great alternatives to traditional 1 v 1. A chance for the defense to work on improving on-ball defense. Alternatively, an opportunity for the offense to practice finishes around the basket.
