(a) strongside

See Pistons 3-ball shooting.

2 cuts backdoor, gets a pass from coach early or sealing at the rim (swim back or buttonhook). 5 reverse pivots from a 21 position to create separation and to see 2 more clearly.

Variations

- 5 passes to 2, gets another ball from coach
- 5 hands off to 1, gets another ball.

5 passes to 1 and follows for a pick and roll or pop, coach on the baseline passes to 5.

(b) weakside

Coach out top has two balls. 3 will curl the downscreen (his defender chases) and 4 pops out, or fade the screen (his defender gaps) and 4 readjusts the screen.

Here 3 fades the screen

4 ducks in for a pass (in a game situation, 5 has not passed to 3). 5 gets another pass for a shot.

Variation - 4 seals on the pass to 3, gets a pass posting up (re-locate the second coach for that pass).

Other option - 3 backcuts (his defender cheats), 4 pops out behind.
