Set Up Shooter With Opposite Action
Several off-the-ball screens set up the point guard dribbling across the top and passing to the weak-side corner moving into a shooting window
WHY USE IT
As opposite-side action distracts the defense, the weak-side-corner player typically is forgotten. Have this player curl into a shooting window for an open 3-point look.
Go from a traditional Horns set with your bigs at opposite elbows and guards in opposite corners.
HOW TO PLAY
The point guard enters the ball to an elbow. In this example, the ball went to the right, which indicates the right-corner guard is the shooter. The point then moves low and screens for the left-corner player. The left elbow down screens so the point can circle back to the perimeter . The ball handler fires a pass across the point on the left side. The two low players relocate to the corners as the right corner moves into a shooting window . After passing, the right elbow sets a ball screen. The point dribbles across and fires a pass to the shooter .
The shooter waits in the corner until the ball moves left, then finds an open shooting window. The ball screener rolls to the hoop and may be open for an over-the-top lob if the shooter sees it develop.
