A way to get more double screens and flare screens into a flex-style continuity offense. Passes trigger actions by following these rules:
ANYTIME you set a backscreen for a flex cutter, you immediately arc wide and flare screen for the high elbow
Begin in 4-out alignment with ballside triangle
Offense can begin with a pass to the wing (shown) or the high elbow to high elbow pass
Rule: Any pass from high elbow to wing triggers a double screen away!
4&1 screen away for 2
2 fills ballside high elbow
1 fills weakside high elbow
4 fills wing
Rule: Any pass from wing to high elbow triggers a weakside flare screen!
On the flight of the pass from 3 to 2, 4 sprints into flare screen for 1
1 cuts off flare screen
2 has option of passing to 1 off the flare (which would trigger a double away) or 4 filling the high elbow
Rule: Any high elbow to high elbow pass triggers the flex&flare action!
2 passes to 4 triggering the flex cut from 3 and 5 steps out to screen for 3
5 then immediately arcs wide and flare screens for 2 (Rule: Anytime you back screen for a flex cutter, you immediately arc wide and flare screen for the high elbow)
4 has the option of passing to 3 on the flex cut or fully reversing to 1 (shown)
If 4 reverses to 1 that triggers a double away: 5 rescreens for 2 and 4 doubles away
4 would then fill weakside high elbow, 5 would fill the weakside wing
4 passes to 5 at high elbow
That triggers the flex & flare action.
1 makes flex cut of 3's backscreen
3 immediately arcs and flares for 4
Now you have basic continuity as 5 can fully (triggering a double away) or pass back to high elbow (triggering a flex & flare action)
