Basketball Play - 54 Slice (SBS)

54 Slice (SBS)

Randy Sherman 08/14/2018

"54 Slice" features a slice cut by 4. SLICE = involves two off-ball players and their interseciting paths to create an advantage. In Frame 1 below, 5 flashes and 4 times their cut right off the rear end of 5 in hopes of "rubbing" their man off of 5 and getting open for the 1st option. If that is not available, the action flows into spread ball screen. For more on Spread Ball Screen: Spread Ball Screen Offense Spread Ball Screen Entries See More

Basketball Play - Twice

Twice

Randy Sherman 05/11/2018

TWICE is in the rescreen family. The first screen (once) elicited the read we want - the on-ball defender went over the screen so the screener rolls. But something caused the ball handler to "bounce out" their dribble. As a result, the roller sprints back out and screens again (twice).
