Raptors 5-out

Coach Al

The original YouTube video is now private, but see Toronto Raptors 5-out offence, a newer video.

The Raptors offensive pillars are

1. Get to the foul line (get fouled in the paint on post-ups or drives, or at the 3-point line).
2. Swing the ball (don't hold the ball for more than one second).
3. Assisted baskets.

1 dribbles upcourt, passes to 5 at the top of the key, 3 backscreens for 1, who cuts to the rim, looks for the ball, then exits to the corner.

See Offence - Severns 21 (Down).
See YouTube videos,
a) NBA's most-used play - the 21 play is a pin-down into a hand-off. 5 can come back to the same side where the ball came from or take it to the other side.
b) Toronto Raptors 5-out motion offence - 1 passes to 5 and screens down for 3.
- 3 can slip the screen in front of his defender (who trails)
- 3 ghosts (fakes) the screen and comes to get a handoff from 5
- 3 screens then cuts to the basket.

5 makes a dribble hand-off to 3 then rolls, 3 looks for 5 or to attack the rim or shoot, 1 spaces up.
21 play - 5 can flip it into a ballscreen after the dribble hand-off.

If not, 5 spaces to the corner, 1 spaces up, 4 downscreens for 2, who curls the screen to the rim.
21 play - 2 comes off the pin-down into a dribble hand-off. If 2 curls or backcuts, screener 4 gets the hand-off. The screener can backcut instead of screening.
See YouTube videos
a) Raptors offence without Kawhi - 4 screens down, 2 slips to the basket (rejects the screen).
a) Raptors offence a symphony - 4 can cut through or screen for 2, or 2 can flare screen for 4 and slip to the rim.

2 clears to the corner if not open, 3 makes a DHO to 4 and rolls, 4 looks for 3 or to shoot.
21 play - if the screener is a big, 3 can pass and follow looking for a hand-back (pinch-post action).

The pattern continues, 2 spaces up, 3 clears, 1 downscreens for 5, who curls it.

5 clears to the corner, 4 makes a dribble hand-off to 1 and rolls.

Here 1 drives and kicks to 3.

Swing the ball to 5 filling the top.
Raptors 5-out offence - 3 makes the extra pass, have the defence scramble.

Into the offence, 4 downscreens for 1, then into a 5-4 dribble hand-off.up
