Basketball Play #45: Smart Options

Follow for more:


Player 1 dribbles up the ball going from the right side to the top of the key. Player 4 and 5 are in a horns position. Player 1 passes to player 5, than cuts to the basket for an easy layup. If that doesnt work player 5 keeps the ball.









Player 1 sets a screen for player 3. Player 5 passes to player 3 and goes and set a stagger screen for player 2 with player 4.









From the stagger, if unable to shoot, player 2 has a few options. Player 3 will set a screen for player 1, and player 2 can pass either to a back door or to player 1 for an open shot.









Player 1 getes the ball, player 2 cuts to the corner, player 3 as well. Player 4 sets a screen for player 2 going in the corner, and player 5 goes to set a screen for player 1. From this situation player 1 has multiple options for scoring.
