Forbes has molded together an offense that relies heavily on motion and big men with perimeter skills. In this video, you will see how he has taken the “Two Game” scheme and simplified it into a system that stresses misdirection on the perimeter to take advantage of defenses. Forbes shares the basics of his offense as well as some of his quick hitters and how he deals with special situations.
Basics of the High Low Motion Offense
With a philosophy of less is more, Coach Forbes’ system utilizes only a handful of motions, movements, and sets. Learning these allows players the freedom to move and react based on how a defense is playing. The offense is continuous by nature and Forbes teaches players to be quick and precise and flow from one set to another seamlessly. Known as “Two Game,” the High/Low Motion offense is great for teams that are not blessed with great size as the offense relies more on spacing and movement.
Forbes shows you his basic box alignment that goes into a 1-4 high set that has four different entries for the point guard. The offense can be run from either side of the floor with the various entry points available. One option is to get the ball to either wing. The point then cuts to either corner with the posts getting to their spots on the floor. This entry is designed to work the defense from inside out reversing the basketball or getting an open 3-pointer.
Forbes also shows you the high post entry from a 1-4 alignment. With this option, there is the backdoor for the ball-side wing, a fade screen for the point guard, as well as a double down screen. The dribble option is also reviewed complete with zipper cut, middle ball screen, and the “Z action.”
