The best way to intimidate a team is to come out with a BANG! The first play of the game is sometimes the biggest play of the game. With an open shot, easy layup or dunk, and even a great defensive play to start off the game can set the tone for the entire game. Good teams and coaches understand the importance of this advantage. Today I will break down a BIG BANG PLAY to get the basketball party started.
The appropriate name of this playset is “Big Bang”. P1 has the ball at the top of the key. P2 and P3 are on each block, P4 and P5 are right above the block. P1 dribbles to the right wing, and P2 cuts off of P5 to replace at the top of the key. P1 passes to P2. Next, P5 and P1 sets a double screen for P3. After double screen P5 and P1 spread wide to the corner as decoys. P2 passes to P3. Simultaneously, P4 sets a back screen for P2 to cut hard to the basket for a layup or dunk. If P2 is not open, P4 sets a ball screen for P3 to attack and create a scoring option.

Nothing gets your team and fans more excited than an easy score at the start of the game. “Big Bang” has several scoring options but the backdoor layup for P2 is the main focus.
