Here are Ryan’s comments about the first play:
This is one of the many “Diamond” sets from Henrik Dettmann of the Finnish National Team.
2, a shooter, sets the back screen for 4.
As x2 helps on the back screen, 5 dribbles out of the post into a handoff for 2.
Because x2 bumps 4 on his cut, he is trailing behind 2 out of position to contest.
Finland – Diamond 2
4 pops out to wing for pass from 1.
2 screens for 5.
4 feeds 5 in the post (inadvertently left off the diagram)
2 sets rip screen for 4.
5 dribbles out of post into hand off for 2.
2 stops behind for shot.
Finland – Diamond 53
This is one of the many “Diamond” sets from Henrik Dettmann of the Finnish National Team. As 4 slips the ball screen, this creates an advantage for the offense as x5 has to help on the slip. As x5 helps, 5 sets a pindown for 3. Because x5 is helping on the slip from 4, the offense creates a 2-on-1 advantage on the weak side since there is no help on 3 as he comes off the screen.
5 sets a pindown for 2.
1 passes to 2.
4 flashes high.
2 passes to 4.
3 cuts backdoor when 4 looks at him.
1 comes up to the wing.
4 passes to 1.
4 fakes ball screen then slips to rim.
5 pindown for 3.
3 comes off screen looking for shot.
1 passes to 3.
