This is a transition basketball play that is going to look to get into the offense as quickly as possible before the defense can get set. It is a pretty simple basketball action, but it is a good quick hitter before the defense can get all the way matched up. The screener needs to set a good screen and the cutter needs to come off looking to score. It is important that all five offensive players sprint the floor and make sure that they maintain good spacing. The quicker you can get into your offense, the more successful it will be.
