The Flare Iso Pick and Roll Play can be a very useful quick hitter coming out of a timeout or even at the end of a quarter or game. This play can be used when a 3-point shot is needed or when you simply want to isolate a guard on the wing with the option to drive or use the pick and roll.
The players set up in a box formation with the point guard at the top. The play is initiated when O4 sets a backscreen for O3 who cuts out to the wing. At the same time, O5 sets a backscreen for O2 who cuts to the opposite corner.
O4, after setting the backscreen, steps out to receive the pass from O1.
After passing the basketball to O4, O1 cuts off a screen from O5 and flares to the wing looking for the pass from O4.
O1 now has isolation on the wing and can take his defender to the basket. O5 can also step over and set a quick pick-and-roll with O1.
