If you are trying to win games (and what coach or team isn’t) you need to understand the impact of offensive spacing. How to screen effectively, and the types of player movement that can help you work toward victory are important parts of the game. If you know how to keep on the offensive through the proper use of these skills you can keep the other team on the defensive. Then you are on the winning end.
The first point to look at is your team’s spacing. Although specific plays may call for changes to the spacing that your team keeps, proper offensive spacing is between fifteen and eighteen feet. If you properly place your offensive players they can interact well. This will force the other team to divide their efforts and this can seriously undermine their defense. Also, you should think about trying to keep your offense ahead of the three point line. With your players so far forward, when they do get the ball they will start in a better position to move in to score. However, this may need to change on occasion, especially if you are planning on performing a screening maneuver.
