Four Out Motion - Drive & Space

The majority of our advantages with Four Out Motion are going to be created by screening actions, but when teams increase the pressure drive & space opportunities emerge.


When we use the term Motion Offense we are referring to a conceptual offense that asks our players to be guided by a certain set of If/Then statements. Those rules then allow us to make appropriate reads based on how the defense plays our actions. In our first Four Out Motion post, we laid out our Four Out Motion offense spacing, roles & design to give us a base to work from. We dug into the reads involved in using Down Screens & Flare Screens - and used diagrams and clips to demonstrate how we might react to certain defensive approaches.
