Quin Snyder's offense centered on screens, cuts and drives is what he calls "advantage basketball."
The system is intended on giving players a head start whenever they catch the ball.
Snyder's first rule of advantage basketball is to never surrender your advantage. If they get a five-foot head start, they should expand it 10 feet before shooting or exchanging the baton.
"You have to keep the advantage," said Rudy Gobert. "Punish them."
Utah also runs a lot of catch-and-rolls to create additional space.
The Jazz aren't necessarily unique in these concepts but they run it with more granular detail than other teams. Utah manages to maximize the talent of their offense by generating higher quality shots.
Utah leads the NBA in on-ball screens by a considerable margin. They also rank fourth in handoffs and eighth in off-ball picks.
