Elite Hoops Playset: Backscreens

Posted by Aj Holland | Friday, October 23, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments

Now that players have become more versatile, specifically in the post spots, teams have been able to add more screens and backcuts to their offenses. This playset is great for a team that is able to pass the ball at a high level under pressure.


                                     

This play begins with P1 passing to P4 and cutting to the basket. P4 then has a dribble handoff with P2. Next, P2 dribbles off of a ball screen and P1 immediately sets a backscreen for P5 rolling to the basket. If the layup is not open P3 is sliding to the corner spotted up for a 3.

Elite Hoops Playset: Butler

Posted by Aj Holland | Friday, October 16, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments

Butler is known for taking teams without the most talent very far in the post season and plays like this explains why they have been so successful. Lots of movement away from the ball containing awkward angled screens make any team difficult to defend because teams are not used to having to guard these actions. See below one of the plays used by Butler to help them score throughout games.

Play starts with P1 dribbling to the wing and passing to P4 flashing to the weak side elbow to receive a pass. P2 and P3 sprint to the opposite corners then P3 sets a flare screen for P1 looking for an open 3 point shot. If not open, P1 will look to drive baseline or possibly pass to P5 posting in the paint.

Elite Hoops Playset: Hawks

Posted by Aj Holland | Monday, October 5, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments

This play ran by the Hawks to free up shooters like John Jenkins and Kyle Korver has become popular throughout the NBA. It contains plenty of player movement which keeps the defense on their toes and forces bigs to show and help in different directions off of screens. Check out the play below to see how to free up your shooters.

This play begins with a zipper cut being ran on the right side of the floor. P1 then cuts off of the staggered screen set along the free throw line to free him up for a catch while P3 replaces. P1 then rejects the ball screen while P4 turns around a sets a screen for P2 looking for an open 3 point shot.
