This is a counter from the base action I diagramed entitled, "Toledo Rockets - Horns Floppy." This is a very simple yet effective counter you can run with this set. The video below is not of this set itselft, but the base horns floppy action.
5 will attempt to bury defender as 2 comes off screen. While this is happening, 1 and 4 set a double stagger screen away for 3 in the corner.
This is a great time for several things:
1) 5 in a post isolation situation while help side is working through the stagger.
2) Obviously a 3pt opportunity for 3 if you have a 5 that garners a lot of attention.
3) While the stagger is occuring, if 5 were to sprint into a side ball screen for 2, that would leave 2 a wide open driving line off of a reject of 5's screen.
1 will stay free throw line extended or higher in the slot of the court as he brings the ball up.
5 drops to the first hash. He does not want to go to setup 2's floppy cut.
2 cuts to top of key.
4 screens for 2 and then pops to receve pass.
2 tight curls diving to front of rim to set up floppy cut but should still be a hard, scoring cut.
This is why 1 wants to bring the ball up in the outer slot as it creates spacing to hit 4 popping, but also to have a chance at feeding 2 on dive cut.
2 gets head under rim and cuts off of 5's screen.
4 hits 2 for a potential shot/post feed.
