Coach Daniel

See YouTube video - Why the NBA is addicted to this play.

"Away" is a secondary break play usually run after a made basket or dead ball. It can be run without the offence slowing down too much,

1 brings the ball up high on a side with 2 and 3 in the corners, 4 on the opposite wing and 5 on top, 4 and 5 stagger screen for 2.

2 can curl to the rim if X2 locks and trails.

Most of the time 2 won't get an immediate shot, 5 can turn to set a ballscreen.

See Fast breaks -  Spurs strong (option a).

Good teams can flow freely from action to action.

Here 2 is not open coming off the stagger, 1 hits 5 and follows looking for a hand-back.

5 fakes a hand-back and runs a DHO with 2.

Here 2 is not a good shooter, he curls the first screen and screens for 4, who uses the stagger screen.

It's not automatically a stagger screen, here 2 curls the first screen to the basket, 4 uses 5's screen.
 
Reid Ouse - Secondary pin down - 2 tight curls the 4-5 stagger, forcing X5 to flatten out, then 4 uses 5, with no hedge by X5 on the secondary pin-down. Another option is that 2 backcuts, 4 uses 5.

Or 4 just turns and uses 5's screen.

See Fast breaks -  Spurs strong (option d).
 
See Toronto Raptors Point Handback - 4 curls 5's screen (or backcuts), then 2 uses 5.

The point guard can attack the rim, the play creates space and the stagger screen occupies defenders.

They can also get a backcut from the corner.

sketch

Defences can use "top-lock" to counter the play, X2 does not let 2 use the screens.

2 takes what the defence gives and cuts to the basket, 4 uses 5's screen.

sketch
10
To get 5 the ball for a 3-point shot, 2 curls the stagger, X5 will help, 5 pops out for a pass and shot.

See Fast breaks - Spurs strong (option e).

Or 2 gets a pass from 1 and throws it back to 5, often X5 will sag back.

sketch

Another option is for 2 to curl the first screen, 5 pops out.

"Away Touch"

2 uses the stagger screen for a pass.

2 makes a dribble hand-off to 1, 5 picks and rolls.
