The Triple Double Sideline out of bounds play can be useful when you want a jump shot from the inbounds play. It also has the potential to be a possible last second play for you because it opens up for a quick catch and shoot. The decoy triple screen into using a double screen often creates an open mid-range jumper as well.
When the official hands the basketball to O3, O1 starts up toward the triple screen and then cuts hard to the corner.
O2, O4, and O5 should be taking a few steps down toward O1 to ‘sell’ the triple screen.
As O1 is clearing to the corner, O2 takes a couple of hard steps toward the basket and then cuts back off the double screen from O4 and O5.
O3 can hit either player for the shot.
- If neither comes off open, O2 should run out as the safety and O5 should step towards O3.
- If O2 receives but has no shot, and O1’s defender is in denial, O1 should cut backdoor for the pass from O2.
- O4 could possibly receive a skip/lob pass if his defender over commits on helping O2.
