4 Across Screen

BLOB1

 

4 releases to catch the inbounds pass at the elbow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLOB2

 

As soon as 4 catches the basketball, 5 sets a wide down screen for 2.

4 dribbles at the cutter for a dribble hand off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLOB3

 

As the hand off takes place, 1 sets a diagonal back screen for 5.

2 is looking for a quick reversal to 3.

The design is to get the ball to 5 at the basket.

You can have 2 and 4 set a staggered screen for 1 to occupy the defense.

 

 

 

BLOB4

 

This frame is another way to finish the play.

You can run a stagger away for 1.

The idea for the post is for you to motivate you and your staff to dedicate some concentrated thinking to ways to put your players in positions to take advantage of their strengths.

After inbounding the ball, 1 comes off a staggered screen from 4 & 5.
