Baseline double basketball plays are usually run for one of your better shooters or scorers, and what they are going to do is run across the baseline for a shot off of a screening action. If you have a player with a hot hand or an outstanding scorer that is being denied a catch, these plays will help them get the ball.
Coaching basketball has a lot to do with strategy and getting your best players the ball where they are comfortable with it and will have a good scoring opportunity. The opposing team will try and limit your best players and do their best to take away their scoring opportunities. When this happens, you need to have basketball plays to help your players get open. That is what double screen basketball plays are really good at.
These basketball plays come with a clipped video of the play and then written text breaking down how to run the play the correct way.
There are three parts to running baseline double basketball plays, and those three parts are the screeners, the cutter, and the passer. All of these parts need to work together to execute the play the right way.
The screeners need to set good screens and then be ready to open up to the ball and be a threat to score if their defender over helps. Some of the best scoring opportunities for post players come from setting great off-ball screens. So make sure that your posts are setting great screens.
Before the player using the screens comes off of them, they must first set their defender up. Then as they are using the screens, they need to read the defense. Depending on how the defense guards the screens will determine what type of cut the shooter should use.
Lastly, there is the passer, and they are important because they need to read the defense and make an on-time pass to the open player. If the shooter comes off of the screens and is open, they need to hit them for the shot or finish before the defense has time to recover. However, if the defense over helps on the shooter, the passer needs to recognize that and then hit one of the screeners for a shot or finish at the basket.
