This sideline out of bounds play is intended to get a scoring attempt when there are but just a few seconds left on the clock. It will also work quite well against a defense that is up and pressuring/denying.
When the official hands the basketball to O3, O4 and O5 flash hard into the backcourt.
O2 turns and sets a screen for O1, and then rolls back to the passer.
O1 cuts hard to the screener and then goes deep. O3 looks to pass to O1 on the breakout.
Coaching Tip: We think of getting a last second score in a tie or losing situation, however, this play might also be run when your team is leading with just a few seconds remaining. The defense will be up to deny and maybe foul quickly, which will allow the quick breakout for an easy layup.
