This 1-4 basketball play is simple to execute and creates a good scoring chance from either the low block area or the top of the key. Though simple to run, it does a nice job of forcing defenders to get through screens and making quick help decisions.
From the 1-4 high formation, O1 dribbles to the right wing replacing O2.
O2 cuts into the lane to set a screen for O5 who dives to the ballside low block. O1 makes the pass to O5 if available.
As soon as O5 cuts past the screen, O4 turns to screen O2’s defender. O2 uses the screen and pops out to the top of the key. O1 makes the pass to O2 for the possible three-point attempt.
The first look is to O5 and the second option is O2. This play can certainly be run a few times in a game because if O5 is open the first time, O2’s defender might overhelp the second time … leaving O2 wide open up top.
