The ‘2 Corner Set’ quick hitter is designed to get a quick shot, especially in the clutch or in late game situations.
2) O2 starts the play by making a straight line cut towards the top, but then cutting quickly backdoor. O2 can stop and post up on the block for a pass from O1 who is dribbling hard to the wing.
If O2 does not post up, he will cut hard off of a double screen being set by O4 and O5. If either O4 or O5’s defender steps high to help on O2, that player will then cut hard to the basket for a pass and layup.
3) O1 looks first for O2 for a three-point shot off the double screen (option 1). If that is not available, O1 will look to penetrate to the basket and shoot, dump to O4 (option 2), or skip across to O3 (option 3).
4) If this is a last second play, all players should look to crash the boards, especially on the longer shot that may be taken by O2, O3 or O1. (in this diagram, O3 is taking the shot).
If it is not being run as a last second play, O2 should stay high to be a possible defensive help.
