2008 DVD & FIBA Assist, issue 3

40

Blind pig (backdoor). 4 takes his man down and pops back, 1 passes to 4.

2 tries to bring his man above 4 then back cuts, continues to the weakside block, then uses a staggered screen from 3 and 5.

1 cuts for a hand-off from 4, who then sets a ballscreen if 1 does not turn the corner or shoot. If there is no hand-off, 1 goes to the wing, 4 will dribble hand-off, or pass to 1 and ballscreen.

42

America's play. 1 dribbles at 2, 2 backcuts then screens for 3, 4 and 5 doublescreen for 2 then cross and go to opposite low posts (X-out).

Options

- if there is strong ball pressure, 1 can first rub his defender off a screen set by 4
- 1 can pass to 2, then 1 is the guy going in to screen for 3.

42 Pinch is the same play except 2 cuts up between 4 and 5.

43 is the same play run to the other side.

Variation - 3 stops at the ballside block, on a pass to 2, 5 and 4 stagger for 3 to come back out.

44

4 and 5 screen for 1. When 1 uses 4, 2 backcuts, backscreens for 5, then uses a downscreen from 4 (screen the screener).

If X5 goes under the backscreen, 5 goes over and beats him to the block; if X5 jumps over the backscreen, 5 goes behind looking for a lob pass.

Often X2 will help on 5, if X3 helps on 2 coming out, look for a skip pass to 3.

FIBA Assist - only 4 screens for 1.

45 is the same play on the other side.
