Flare Hammer Combo Set
The 1 player will come off the screen set by the 4 player and curl to the basket for the pass.
On the catch, the 1 player will drive baseline, looking to kick it to the 2 player in the corner for the 3-point shot.
On the drive, X2 will get caught staring at the ball, while the 2 player flares to the corner off of a flare screen set by the 5 player.
If you only need 2 points, the 1 player can drive for the layup.
If the 1 player is not open, the 3 player will pass to the 4 player.
The 4 player has 2 Flare screen options, either to the 2 player or 3 player.
The 4 player can pass it to the 2 player coming off of the flare screen set by the 5 player.
If you only need 2 points, the 5 player can slip to the basket for a layup on the flare screen.
The 4 player can also pass it to the 3 player coming off of the flare screen set by the 1 player for the 3-point shot.
If you only need 2 points, the 1 player can slip to the basket for a layup on the flare screen.
