Floppy basketball plays are set up with one of your best shooters under the basket, while the other players set a double screen on one side of the lane, and a single screen on the other. The shooter now has the option to come out either side to start the play.
This is a great way to get one of your better shooters a shot or a touch, especially if the defense is locking in on them and trying to deny them a catch. It is your job as a basketball coach to make sure that you are getting your players the basketball in a spot where they are comfortable with it, and will be able to get a quality shot off.
The success of these basketball plays are going to primarily depend on two different things; setting good screens, and the ability of the cutter to read the defense. The screeners need to be willing to headhunt and set a good legal screen, and the shooter must set their man up each time.
Because the defender can guard the screen several different ways the shooter must read the defender as they come off the screen choose the correct cut. For example if the defender chases than the shooter can curl on the screen or straight cut, but if the defender goes under the screen then the shooter should fade on the screen.
