IMO, it is important to replicate the shots that you shoot in games from your offensive system during your improvement season workouts. That means shots you get against man to man defense as well as against zones. Even if these shots are not a part of your zone attack, I encourage you to incorporate you cuts against zone and the shots you get into your shooting workouts.
