“NAIL” CALL

When the ball handler is trapped, it is important that he treats this like a “press offense” situation, with 3 outlets and a long diagonal pass.

So when 1 is trapped 4 spaces to corner, 2 steps up to get behind the trap and 5 flashes to elbow.

Here we have a trap on a side ball screen, with a guard underneath the ball screen. (loaded side)

The post must roll on the ball screen because of the guard in the corner. The other post is high in the alley.

When the post rolling sees a trap he turns back and comes to the ball as the middle outlet.

The wing in the corner will elevate a be an outlet pass.

The opposite post moves up to be an outlet also.
