This high post entry backdoor basketball play is all about spacing and selling the hand off action. It is out of a two man game, so that means that the two players have a whole side of the floor to work with. The weak side players need to be ready to cut or do something with the basketball if it is kicked out to them, if their man over helps.
The cutter must sell that he/she is coming off for a hand off and then sharply cut backdoor for the layup. If the defender is guarding the backdoor then the cutter can come off for the hand off and then play out of it. Screener needs to make sure that if they do hand the ball of that they screen the defender but then also open up or role to the basket afterwards. Basketball plays like this are all about reading the defense, and then taking advantage of what they are giving up.
Play Name: Houston Rockets: High Post Give & Go Backdoor Play (10-11)
Play Goal: Pass the ball to the high post and read the defender. If the defender is taking away the hand off then cut backdoor.
Tips: Make sure that the other 3 players are spacing the floor. Big man needs to lead the cutter on the backdoor pass. If the defender is taking away the backdoor cut then just use the hand off and play a two man game out of it, don't be a robot.
