Florida 3-point shots
Three-point shots in transition.
1 passes to 2 and sprints through to the opposite corner, 5 posts on the first marker, trailer 4 comes to the weakside elbow.
2 drives hard baseline, 4 and 5 stagger screen for 3. 2 can look for 1 (jump out of bounds) or stop, reverse pivot and pitch back to 3. They want X5 to cut off the dribble penetration.
To run it for 2, switch sides.
To run it for 1, he stops at the elbow then wraps back using 4 and 5.
To run it for 4, he acts like he is going to screen away for 3 then uses screens from 1 and 5.
Another play for 1 - after he passes and cuts through, 4 comes down to screen in X1, who is in a help position when the ball is on the other wing. 3 runs his same action, 2 drives and jumps out of bounds to pass to 1.
3 loops through to the block, 4 runs to the elbow, 2 lifts and runs down with his fist up like he is going to screen for 3 but sprints between 4 and 5, who then close the gap.
3) End of game
Most teams are switching at the end of a game. 5 is off the first marker. 3 goes through and curls using 5 and 2 (a shooter), who gets inside 5.
5 backscreens for 2 (he has to screen the right guy if defenders have switched) then rolls to the basket.
If there is no pass, 4 ballscreens for 1 then fades for a pass using a screen from 3.
Four ways Donovan tries to get open threes are
- transition, push hard for early threes
- dribble penetration, drive and kick
- post kick-outs, passing out of double teams followed by ball reversal
- offensive rebounds, best time for open threes, find a shooter sprinting to spot up.
The more you force the defence to close out, the greater chance you have of getting to the paint, so your offensive thinking should be how to create closeout opportunities.
A 4 that can shoot creates so many offensive opportunities.
