The Set Offense Every Basketball Team Loves to Use

The Film Room Ep. 6

A set offense that can transform into countless possibilities? Which tactic is it?


In this episode, I would like to share with you guys a tactic called the Zipper Play.

Zipper Offense其實只是進攻的其中一方面,球員利用“Zipper Cut”獲得接球的空間,也就是外線球員由低位利用隊友的掩護切出。

The Zipper Offense is actually only one part of attacking. The Zipper Cut is essentially a down screen for a guard to use to get the ball.

當他在外線接到球之後,他就可以執行接下去的其它戰術組合,比如像Raptors的Zipper Down、Mono Vampire的Zipper Fist、GSW的Zipper Pitch Back和Zipper Loop,還有Spurs的Zipper Loop Fan等等。

After the guard receives the ball, they can go on to trigger other combinations, like the ones we will talk in this video: Raptor’s Zipper Down, Mono Vampire’s Zipper Fist, Golden State Warriors Zipper Pitch Back and Zipper Loop, as well as Spurs’ Zipper Loop Fan.

Let’s check it out!
