The point guard cuts outside the initial pass, which moves the back-side wing to the ballside block before the ball reverses and leads to another flash to the block.
Why use this drill
- No play call is needed here. Simply have players react off the point guard’s movement after the initial pass.
- The point guard starts with the ball shifted to the right side. The weak side has three players while the ball side just has a wing.
How to play
- 3 gets open
- 1 passes to 3
- 1 then moves to the outside of 3 and to the corner
- 4 flex-cuts off 5 to the block
- 5 backscreens for 2
- 2 cuts and looks for the lob 
- 4 may have position on the ball-side block and if so, then 3 makes the post entry to 4 
- If the pass to 4 isn’t available, then the ball reverses on a pass from 3 to 5
- 2 cross-screens for 4
- 5 dribbles left and looks for 4 coming across to the new ball-side post
- Make the pass to 4 for the in-close opportunity .
Here’s a simple diagram for setting up this drill:
How to perfect the technique for this play
- Once 1 goes outside of 3, everyone knows their role. 4 moves low and continues to the ball-side block. And, be sure 5 takes a dribble or two
to create a better postpassing lane.
