Playname: Tempo
This is option1 of this play which I made up.
It should be used against a 1-3-1 half court defense which your opponent may use to try to change the tempo of the game.This is an excellent counter and will give you a quick basket.
3 sprints over to the opposite side of the floor near the baseline.
2, 5, and 4 screen the nearby defender.
-5 and 4 should do v-cuts before the screen so the defender doesn't see it coming.
-If you are 4, watch 3 in the key.
As you can see 3 is open for the lob.
If you are 3, jump to the ball if nessecary.
3 dribbles in until picked up by the defending #5.
4 should spin off his defender and be open for the entry pass.
4 lays it in.
3, 4, and 5 are in decent position for the rebound.
4 should try to step out of the paint momentarily to get a fresh 3 seconds.
