Toronto Raptors - Pistol Options - FastModel Sports
This early offense action is widely used throughout the entire NBA, as well as through other levels of basketball. The version the Toronto Raptors have used over the past couple seasons has manufactured many mismatches for their talented back court, as it allows them to attack downhill while the defense is not set, but also creates advantages for secondary players as well.
Option 1: Half step up ball screen in transition. If the defense is unprepared (chooses not to switch, doesn't properly hedge, etc...) the 1 has an advantage heading towards the rim with momentum.
Option 2: Flare screen. If the step up ball screen does not create a possession-ending advantage, the 2 utilizes a flare screen from the 5. If enough space is created, an over-the-top pass can lead to a jumper or drive.
Option 3: Half ball screen. If after both the step up ball screen, as well as the flare screen, no meaningful advantage is utilized...
...the 5 continues to move towards the ball handler on the wing and engages in a side-to-middle pick and roll.
Option 1b: Instead of using a step up ball screen, 1 can engage in a DHO with 2, who then receieves a ball screen from 5.
