Double Screen For Corner 3-Pointer

Run the farthest player off a low double screen to create an open 3-point corner shooting opportunity from a sideline out-of-bounds set

WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL 3-POINTER PLAY
Double screens on inbound situations are perfect for creating an open corner shooting situation.

SET UP
The inbound play is coming from the left side. Your shooter is on the right block. Place a player at the top and another at the elbow. Your final player is on the strongside block.

HOW TO PLAY
The top player moves to the strong-side block. After the top player clears, the elbow player comes high and receives the inbound pass [1]. The initial strong-side post moves across the lane to set a screen for the shooter. The top player who now is low also sets a screen. This double screen allows the shooter more separation as he sprints to the strong-side corner. The pass is made to the shooter [2]. The screeners in the lane get into box-out rebounding mode. The shooter takes the shot in rhythm before the defense recovers [3].

TECHNIQUE
Be sure the top player move slow before the elbow comes to the ball. You want the double screen set up at the same time rather than already having the ball in play and waiting for the top player to move into position.
