Coach Daniel

See YouTube videos - Horns flare, Horns double pick and roll.

A shooter ballscreens then uses a post flarescreen to get open.

If X3 hedges, 3 will be wide open.

coachesclipboard.ca - if X3 hard hedges on the ballscreen, 5 can just cut down the lane and 3 cuts to the other side of the floor as if he had received the flarescreen.
 
Chris Oliver - Horns slip - 5 flarescreens then slips to the basket, see YouTube video - Horns plays that work.

See Horns 1 - Wildcats, Beltramo (5 flarescreens then dives), Quick hitters - High and wing, Ravens 2015, Utah Jazz bull small.
 
If 1 uses 5, see Horns - Basic for options.

5 goes right into a ballscreen without setting a flarescreen for 3.

This can be a pick and pop, e.g., if 5 can shoot.

c)

3 doesn't set a ballscreen for 1, he just sprints into a flare cut using 5's screen.

X3 is expecting a ballscreen.
 
Chris Oliver - Horns clear - 1 attacks the gap created by 3.
