This sets main action is a step up ballscreen. I really like step up ballscreens because I think it gets the action going towards the rim and is harder to “load up” against.
Even if you are a coach who doesn’t run a lot of ballscreens it is important to have different plays where different angled ballscreens are being set. As I’m preparing for an opponent and watching film, one of the first things I am trying to figure out is how to scheme against ballscreens. The toughest teams to prepare for are ones that have multiple angled and multiple action ballscreens (side, high, flat, step up, roll/replace, drags, slips, doubles, L ballscreens etc) that force you to review and have in multiple defensive schemes.
2 and 4 stagger for 3 to wing. PG enters to 3 and spaces. 2 spaces after screening.
As soon as 3 has cleared 4 on the downscreen you want him to clear out opposite. When the ball is in the air from PG to 3 5 should be on a sprint out to the step up ballscreen. 3 attacks the ballscreen.
After the PG/5 ballscreen could do any number of things. If 5 is a good 15-16 foot shooter then have him pop to the pocket of the defense around the left elbow. PG and 2 interchange.
Could also have 5 roll hard to basket and 4 fill behind high looking for a shot. PG and 2 interchange.
Another good look is to have 5 roll hard to the rim and fill 4 behind right into another ballscreen.
