Russia ran this middle pick-&-roll action against Belgium in their second game at FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017.
The slice (shuffle screen) and screen-the-screener action is decoy to force the defense to move before getting into a middle pick-&-roll attack. As soon as 1 catches the ball from 2 up top, 5 turns around and sprint immediately into a ball-screen. As 5 rolls to the basket 2 "shakes" behind to create a single-side bump. 1 has option of passing to 5 rolling or 2 lifting behind for shot.
If X5 is late recovering, 5 rolls into a post-up and receives the post feed from 2 (off of the triangle passing from 1).
Another option is to have 4 "short" the pick-&-roll if X5 hard hedges.
5 screens in for 4. 4 exits to wing for a catch from 1. 1 rubs off of 5 to basket.
5 passes to 2. 1 sets a shuffle screen for 4. 5 screens down for 1. 2 passes to 1.
5 turns and set a middle p/r with 1. 1 comes off screen. 5 rolls to basket. 2 shakes up creating single-side bump.
Versus overplay on backside:
2 is overplayed and cuts backdoor. 5 passes to 2.
