FIBA Assist issue 4
Triangle offence, with three players on one side and two on the other.
1 sets up his cut with two steps away from the ball, and cuts ballside of the screen to score.
If the defenders switch, 2 passes to 5 on the roll.
- 5 slips straight to the basket against defences that switch (or at times against defences that hedge really hard)
- 2 dribble hand-offs to 5
- no screen - 5 holds near the elbow, 2 does a jab step crossover faking middle then drives baseline (there is usually very little help defence because of the double screen on the weakside).
1 and 5 double screen at a 90-degree angle. 2 reads his defender and cuts high or low.
The best denial option is a simple screen by 5 for 2. Usually X5 helps or switches on 2, giving 5 an easy catch.
Can also be used when X5 cannot guard the dribble (similar to the no-screen option).
4 ballscreens for 1.
Options against sagging defences:
a) cross screen
1 screens for 3, whose defender is sagging in the lane. 5 holds and does not ballscreen for 2.
b) two screens
4 screens X3 sagging in the lane.
2 or 4 will slip the screens if their defenders help on the cutters.
