‘Drag’ & Drop Multiple Scoring Chances
Start with a handoff on the wing, which leads into a drag screen and allows your offense to attack the middle of the lane as the defense can’t cover it all.
WHY USE IT
This play creates a lot of traffic near the right wing, which causes the defense to have a hard time to know where the ball is going and to cover all the options springing from the initial handoff and screen action.
1 has the ball at the top shifted to the right side. 2 is in the right corner. 3 is in the left corner. 5 is on the right block and 4 is following the action up the floor and is running up on the opposite side of 1.
HOW TO PLAY
1 dribbles toward 2 as 2 elevates out of the corner. 1 and 2 are about to execute a handoff on the right wing . 1 hands to 2. On the handoff, 4 sprints toward the right wing to set the drag ball screen for 2. 2 uses the screen to start attacking the middle of the floor. 5 is posting up in case 2 wants a quick option to the post . Once 2 approaches the middle the floor, 5 shifts to the other block, which allows 4 to roll to the hoop. 1 flares a little deeper on the wing .
2 either continues attacking toward the hoop for a high-percentage opportunity or hits 4 on the roll. 1 also may be open on the wing for a 3-pointer if the defense collapses. 3 stays in the corner for the duration to keep a defender occupied away from the ball.
