Flood one side of the floor, then seal the other side to set up a dribble drive for an attacking layup or a kick-out pass for a 3-pointer against a 2-3 zone. MORE
Double-Option, Double-Screen Nets 3
Move two weak-side players low to set a double screen for a potential shooter, then use them again to do the same thing for a second shooter
WHY USE IT
This play creates an initial and a secondary 3-point shot opportunity. It works well because if the defense stops the initial action, it isn’t expecting another shooter coming to the same corner.
Four players are located outside the 3-point line with one player (who needs solid ball-handling and passing skills) at the ball-side elbow.
HOW TO PLAY
The guard passes across the court and cuts off the elbow player’s screen. The screener steps out and receives a pass. The original ball handler moves to the ball-side corner . The player with the ball dribbles left as the two weak-side players move low and set a double screen for the first potential shooter. The second shooter starts making his way into position . The first look is to the shooter in the corner. If he’s not open, then he moves to the left wing as the second shooter runs off a double screen into the corner .
The weak-side players must work in tandem to pick off the trailing defenders and create enough separation for an open shot for either shooter.
