Double Low Screen Frees Shooter
From University of Miami
After receiving the initial pass, the shooter relocates to the opposite block, only to come to the perimeter off a pair of screens for an open 3-point shot.
Why use it
Starting with five players above the free-throw line leaves a lot of room to operate closer to the basket once your actions get going. This sets up the double screen and creates a wide-open 3-pointer.
All five players are above the free-throw line with your point guard with the ball on the right side. 4 is on the left side opposite 1. 2 and 3 are on opposite wings, lower than 4 and 1. 5 is stationed in the middle of the floor.
How to play
1 passes across to 4, then runs off a screen set by 5.
1 moves to the left-block area.
4 then swings the ball to 2 and runs off a screen from 5 to relocate near the right block .
After setting the two screens, 5 pops high and receives a pass from 2.
3 steps low and gives the look as if he or she is going to screen for 4. 2 and 1 move low as they are going to screen for 4 .
1 and 2 set the double low screen.
4 runs off both screens and comes free on the left wing.
5 passes to 4. 4 shoots as there are no defenders in the area to close out .
After moving to the right block, have 4 stand there and appear not part of the upcoming actions. This shifts the defensive focus elsewhere and makes the double screen even more effective.
