The movements of this set shift the defense enough to bring your shooter to the top for a 3-point attempt after setting a screen along the baseline. MORE
Perimeter Passing Sets Up Curling 3
Run your point guard off a pair of screens so it appears that player is the intended shooter but an extra pass as the shooter elevates from the corner gives you an open 3.
WHY USE IT
This is another one of those plays where there is constant movement and motion as players pass, cut, run off screens and keep defenders on their toes before the final dagger of an extra perimeter pass leads to a wide-open 3-pointer.
1 has the ball shifted to the right side of the set. 4 is on the left side on the perimeter. 3 is on the left wing. 2 is in the right corner. 5 is near the right block.
HOW TO PLAY
1 passes across to 4 to start the actions. 5 then steps high and screens for 1, who is cutting backdoor . 5 now pops to the perimeter. 4 passes to 5. 4 then immediately diagonally cuts through the lane to set a screen for 1. 1 curls around the screen on the opposite side of the floor toward the perimeter. 5 passes to 1  After the pass, 5 moves toward the corner and screens for 2. 2 elevates toward the wing. 1 passes to 2 for the shot .
It initially appears the play is for 1 but the extra pass to 2 elevating should generate a 3-point shot. If not, 2 looks back across for 1, who is moving to the left wing off a screen from 4. 3 also is crossing along the baseline and may be open for an inside pass.
