7 (and the 7-Up variation) are simple baseline inbounds plays you can run against a zone defense.
The hard flashes often create open layup opportunities and once the defense sags to stop that, an opening is created for a 3-point shot.
When official hands the basketball to #3, #1 and #2 break hard to the corners. #5 picks a side and flashes to the low block. #4 goes hard to the opposite block. If ball side guard does not get the ball, he will release as the safety valve.
Same setup as ‘Seven’, however after #1 and #2 break to the corners, #4 steps up and screens off the defender. #3 throws a skip pass to #5 who steps back for a jump shot or 3-pointer. It is important for #5 to set up the defender by faking a cut to the basket.
It is also beneficial to run this play after running ‘Seven’. The defenders will be prepared to defend the cut, but will be taken by surprise at the screen and skip pass.
This is such a simple play to run, yet I am amazed at how many easy layups and wide-open 3-pointers this creates.
