Low Double Screen Opens Shooting

Start the action to the left, then use perimeter dribbling and a well-timed low double screen to create an open 3-point shot from the right corner

WHY USE IT
Have your set plays utilise a lot of movement to keep the defense shifting while possibly creating additional scoring opportunites.

SET UP
The player who ends up with the open 3-point shot begins with the ball on the left wing. All five players are at the free-throw-line extended or higher.

HOW TO PLAY
The ball handler passes left then immediately receives a return pass. On the catch, a pass is made to the right. The left wing runs toward the baseline and emerges on the right side off a double screen [1]. Coming off the double screen, a pass is made to the curling player. The player on the left block sprints and sets a ball screen. The ball handler dribbles into the middle of the floor [2]. The player in the right corner relocates to the wing on the dribble penetration. A pass then is made to him as the weak side wing streaks along the baseline off a low double screen. A pass is made to the corner for the open 3-pointer [3].

TECHNIQUE
When the ball handler penetrates into the middle, give him the green light to attack the rim if the defines leaves the middle open.
